Election chaos

Along with many other candidates, I have been contacted by voters who have applied for postal votes which have yet to arrive.

This includes people who will be out of Cornwall next week on holiday. The paperwork should have been sent out on 22 May, but for many people the ballots had not arrived when they had to leave for their holidays.

And then there is the scandal about certain postal ballots - that did arrive - not including all the candidates’ names.

The whole thing is a disgrace and democracy in Cornwall has been even further damaged as a consequence. A full inquiry is needed.
