Postal vote rigged? How else would NuLab know the results already?

Labour organisers in Scotland
are already claiming victory, and getting the Independent
to publish results of postal votes BEFORE the voting is complete.

 

– In Ochil, a seat currently held by the SNP, Labour has
taken 457 out of 981 votes cast by post. The SNP has 322, the Tories 127 and
the Liberal Democrats 75. In another key marginal, Strathkelvin and Bearsden,
Labour's David Whitton,a former aide to the man who created the Scottish
Parliament, the late Donald Dewar, has picked up 202 postal votes out of about
700. The other main candidates have between 100 and 150. The seat is held by an
independent, Jean Turner.-

Has this election been rigged?, Everyone was aware of the
scandal of the NuLab activists being caught
filling in postal votes in Leeds, the statements from both Information Commission
and the Electoral Commission stating that the system was flawed, using unproven
technology, that postal vote counters were not ready, that postal vote requests
had gone up by 600pct in some areas. 

Its all too convenient.

But to publish the results before the polls close leads one
to believe that the entire election is a fit up. 

As one commenter on Iain Dale's blog stated – it's wholly
illegal if my reading of article 4a of Section 66 of the Representation of the
People Act is correct.

“(4) Every person attending the proceedings in connection with the issue
or the
receipt of ballot papers for persons voting by post shall maintain and aid in
maintaining the secrecy of the voting and shall not –
(a) except for some purpose authorised by law, communicate, before the poll
is closed, to any person any information obtained at those proceedings
as to the official mark;”

Another commenter said

“6.11 Votes themselves are not counted at opening
sessions, although the number
of ballot papers is counted. Opening sessions are intended to identify ballot
papers
that are accompanied by validly completed postal voting statements and that can
therefore be included in the count.
6.12 Candidates and agents can observe but may not interfere with the opening
process. All those attending the opening of postal ballots must maintain the
secrecy
of the ballot, and candidates and agents should not make any attempt to see how
any individual ballot paper is marked, nor make any attempt to take notes of
how
ballot papers are marked. If you or your agent have any concerns about the
opening
process, you should raise them immediately with the Returning Officer or a
member
of their staff.”

That is from the Scottish Election guidance on the electoral commission
website. http://www.electoralcommission.org.uk/files/dms/Candidate-guidance-SP2007_24827-18410__S__.pdf

Anyone here live in the constituencies concerned? If so they ought to contact
the returning officer immediately.
