Yes, if that is possible. That is contingent on the tests that are being conducted. We are purchasing a number of electronic voting machines and they must go through extensive tests. If, at the end of that, we think it is sufficiently fool-proof – I have every reason to believe it will be – we would do this on a constituency rather than an individual polling station basis. If we are not satisfied, we will not go ahead with it. It is, however, our intention to do that. The Bill being prepared on electoral matters generally into which this process will feed will cater for that.
On Deputy McCormack's suggestion, while it might be a very effective way to ensure people turn up to vote, people would end up coming to us with notes from their doctor, travel agent, hospital and so on to explain why they were away. In the current highly competitive, multi-seat constituency system, even if I or the returning officer provided the information, I would query exactly how many Deputies would say that.
