How long does this have to take?
We should have PROVISIONAL election results in by now!
Digital scanning is not exactly new technology- and MOST of the results have been in for some time now.
I guess the counters 'work' like council types 'work'...
Still waiting for the official results- although several hours ago the grapevine said 'status quo'. As for my last comment- They DO work like the council- everything in triplicate.
The forms could be scanned like a lotto coupon- if they are not filled out properly, the voter fails the IQ test and the vote is binned. (each has a unique barcode identifier to get around bent Auckland Liarbore wannabes)
After all, even the extremely unintelligent manage a lotto coupon or the far more technical TAB setting slip!
Finally got the news through the back door. The government website was a failure- what a surprise!
