6. In the polling stations at the Court House and Council Chamber in the polling division of St. John's City
<(North) queues of voters were formed before the opening of the poll. These grew longer as the day wore on despite
the efforts of the election officers to speed up the voting. By now it had become obvious that if all persons desirous
of voting were to be allowed to do so before the closing of the polls it would be necessary to appoint additional
election officers. Five ad litional election officers including the Returning Officer were appointed to assist in the
taking of the polls as a result of which by 5.30 p.m. the queues had disappeared and voters were appearing singly and
in small groups of twos and threes. At the closing of the polls at 6 p.m. only five voters were inside and these were
allowed to cast their votes. No irregularities were reported and the entire proceedings took place in an atmosphere of
oalm and quiet orderliness.

7. In the other polling divisions the voting was conducted in an orderly manner and as far as can be
ascertained no incidents were reported to the police. Members of the police force were in attendance at all the polling
stations throughout the period of voting and at the various counting stations at the counting of votes.

8. I must draw attention to one significant fact in connexion with compilation of the List of Voters of all
the electoral districts, an I that is-the amount of double registration of voters which appear therein. This has no
doubt been brought about through persons obtaining registration forms from the Registering Officers for prospective
voters without first checking on the existing voters list whether that person had already been registered as a voter
either in the district in which he now resides or in the district in which he resided at the last general elections. In
the result the Register of Voters does not reflect the actual number of registered voters.
I have the honour to be,
Sir,
Your obedient Servant,
