Voter takes a stand

Pat Blackman did not see it coming that she would not be allowed to vote with bangles on her wrist this morning at Princess Margaret Secondary School, St Philip.

Blackman said she refused to vote after she said she was told by the Returning Officer that her bangles would not be allowed.

She said a police officer was summoned and instead of removing the jewellery she preferred to leave without voting.

Blackman said her decision was based on principle and that she was not contravening any of the rules that prohibited all electronic and communications equipment. (JS)
