Campaign observers watch vote counts

18 Sep, 2014

Observers from both campaigns at the count for rural Aberdeenshire, held in the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre, watch election officials unfold and stack up the ballot papers from particular polling stations to check the number of ballot papers matches the number of votes, and tally up a rough indication of how the vote went in those areas. The observers have been out on the ground and will have an idea of what to expect from each area, so they can measure their rough counts against what they might have expected from a certain village. The process is for a sample indication.
