LETTER: Vote for one or two people, if you choose

The Editor,

With the municipal elections just a couple of weeks away, and the lists of candidates appearing in the local press, I’d like to point out, to those who do not know, that voters can choose just one or two names on the slates (apart from that for mayor) and be quite legal, having done their duty.

Many voters, seeing a request for nine councillors (in Surrey), 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 people out to the polls.
