With the municipal elections just a couple of weeks away, and the lists of candidates appearing in the local press, it should be pointed out, to those who do not know, that voters can just choose one or two names on the slates and be quite legal, having done their duty.
Many, seeing a request for nine councillors, will feel obligated to put a cross beside nine names – sometimes arbitrarily checking the first nine, or the last nine on the list, with variations in between!
The fact that we can vote almost anywhere in Surrey, and for days prior to Nov. 15, makes voting easier. Let’s hope we get more out to the polls.
Sheila Gair, Surrey
