gecko BS: Hangers on at Polling Stations (30) RE: BS: Hangers on at Polling Stations 24 Apr 05

'Scrutineer' is the name used for "vote validity inspectors/observers" and every candidate is entitled to have scrutineers present during the count (and also when required, in the polling booth) - which is a good job as it's not unknown for the tired Electoral Officers, who have often been on duty all day, to make mistakes. It's pretty tense sometimes with the various supporters all craning to have a decko to make sure their candidate receives the correct count. Challenges to the count have to be taken seriously and can cause the count to be rather long which then makes you late for the Victory Party (or the Commiseration Wake).

Yours in Unity
