Some voters think outside the box

Monday, March 26, 2012

They may have been in the minority but some Election Committee members made their stand clear.

Four of them voted for both Leung Chun-ying and Henry Tang. One went further, voting for all three, including Albert Ho.

There were other anomalies. One ballot contained an inverted tick in Ho's box and the words "against small-circle election," while another had the words "universal suffrage" without any box ticked.

One voter put half the tick outside Leung's box. It was ruled valid because the intention was clear.

All in all, seven votes were ruled invalid and 75 were blank votes.
