Election Night Saved

Political anoraks can relax as election night has been saved. Before the last election the Electoral Commission were threatening to go all European and make us wait until the next day before counting votes would begin. Lazy council types, who don’t like late nights, leapt on the idea. Sadly for them though the EC have seen the error of their ways:

“Candidates and political parties, having campaigned hard, want results as soon as possible, and returning officers and their staff work hard to deliver accurate and timely results.”

Maybe they should buy some of those expensive counting machines that were made so popular by the AV referendum…
