Residents fury as postal votes fail to arrive

RESIDENTS were fuming when their postal votes did not arrive in time for them to have their say in the local council elections or referendum.

Duncan Penn, from Kingsmead, said: “Today is polling day, but for some off us voting by post we haven't received our postal vote forms because of a printing error.

A Northwich woman, who did not wish to be named, said: “Mine never arrived and I’m not the only one – there were six people in one street in Eddisbury and one woman who had hers but her husband didn’t have his, the council sent another but it was for her and not her husband.  “I’m absolutely disgusted."

My comment: Just how many times are CWaC Council going to make a hash of elections before they do something about it and sack the person responsible? This is not a one off mistake, it now appears to be the norm with CWaC! I was under the impression that the CEO was given extra pay to organise elections, it that is true then it's about time they replaced the CEO or at least demanded their money back.
