EU Citizens Were Sent Polling Cards and Postal Votes

euref-polling-card

Following Guido’s story that a number of EU citizens had been sent referendum polling cards despite not having a vote, the Electoral Commission has confirmed an IT glitch meant people were wrongly sent ballots and postal votes:

“We are aware that a small number of non-eligible EU citizens had mistakenly received poll cards and, in some instances, postal votes for the EU Referendum. We are working to confirm the exact number of electors who have been affected by an issue with elections software and will be able to confirm numbers tomorrow afternoon.

“The software provider has resolved the issue which means that, if any postal votes have been issued to these electors, they will be cancelled and none of these electors will be shown as eligible on the electoral registers to be used at polling stations on 23 June. All of the affected electors will also be written to by their local Electoral Registration Officer with an explanation of what happened and will be told that they will not be able to vote at the referendum.”

Gives you confidence in the system…

George Osborne’s Evening Standard leader on Leave voters:

“Now, like a duped drunk in a strip bar, voters find that, far from getting their hands on the goodies, they have been left with a large bill.”
