Glenrothes : Ghosts Vote By Post

There appear to be hanging chad issues in Glenrothes, where surprisingly Labour, the underdogs, held the seat with a 6,737 majority against a strong SNP effort.
The Courier, a local newspaper, is reporting that the records have gone missing.

In December the SNP in Glenrothes applied to the sheriff court to obtain a copy of the marked electoral register—on which officials in polling stations score out voters as they register to vote. It is the official record of who presented themselves to vote.

Candidates and their agents are allowed to see a copy of the register, which records only who voted and not how they voted.

However, after repeated requests for the document last month, Councillor John Beare, the convener of the SNP Central Fife constituency, has been told that it has gone missing.

Mike Smithson over at PoliticalBetting.com remarks that the “startling thing about Glenrothes was the massive increase in postal votes compared with the general election – up four-fold if I recall correctly. It all sounds fishy.” Quite.
