We’ve just learned that in Ashfield we can have up to 13 ‘count agents’ at the Festival Hall, Kirkby in Ashfield, for the vote counting and declaration on May 7/8. There are no duties, but you’ll be able to see the individual parties’ votes mounting at the counting tables.
Polling ends at 10pm on May 7, and the current ‘best guess’ is that the vote declaration will take place between 04:00 – 05:00 the following morning. We’ll have rosettes for everyone there supporting us. It should be an exciting few hours.
If you’d like to join me, please email me [email protected] with your name and address – the election people will send you a letter which you’ll need to bring with you in order to gain admission. Priority will be given to donors and other supporters.
I’ll post another blog piece if Ray Barry also wants some people at his count in Broxtowe.
