"Pre-poll Voting? Ram It You Scum!"

Jersey election 2014: Move to extend pre-poll voting




Voting is a government franchise!!!


Black’s Law Dictionary;
Franchise. A special privilege to do certain things conferred

by government on individual or corporation, and
which does not belong to citizens generally of common
right
Elective franchise. The right of suffrage; the right or

privilege of voting in public elections.


Pre-poll voting may be offered in out-of-town locations in a bid to improve turnout at States elections in Jersey.
It is one of a number of suggestions put forward by the Privileges and Procedures Committee.
Currently pre-polling occurs for about three weeks before an election, but only in St Helier on weekdays.
The committee wants to start offering pre-polling at three locations on Saturdays before elections to help those who live and work out of town.
Opening the polling stations is expected to cost about £10,000.
Other proposals include extending the amount of time islanders have to register to vote before an election and allowing prisoners on remand to vote by pre-poll.
The committee also considered whether holding elections on a weekend or bank holiday would encourage more people to vote, but found no evidence it would make any difference.
If approved the changes would come into effect from January - after the next general election in October.

  5. Don't go to the Parish hall, there is no law saying you have to, if you go it shows that you are concerned. The BBC are a corporation supported by Government which will be changing its structure so only civil law will be used. The BBC know this, and it appears they are fielding a knee jerk reaction.

    Ignore them.

    Leave them sit in the Parish hall by themselves, and ask each other silly questions.
