VOL. III. THURSDAY, 17'rT APRIL, 1958. No. 18.

Report on the Election to the House of Representatives
of The West Indies.


Sir, 8th April, 1958
Sir,
I have the honour to submit herewith my Report as required by section 79 (4) of the Antigua
Constitution and Elections Ordinance, 1951, on the election held on the 25th March, 1958 for the pur-
pose of electing two members from this Colony to serve in the House of Representatives of the West
Indies.
2. The direction and supervision of, and the procedure at, the election were in accordance with the
provisions of the abovenamed Ordinance as modified and adapted for the purpose.
3. Notes for the guidance of the Election Officers were prepared by the Supervisor of Elections,
and these Notes were supplemented by a lecture to, and discussions with, the Election Officers, some of
whom were so serving for the first time, at the Princess Elizabeth Hall on 22nd March, 1958.
4. The assistance rendered by the iReturning Officer (Mr. A. E. L. WILLIAMS) in supervising the
election arrangements and ensuring that the election materials were made available to all polling stations
is gratefully acknowledged and, I desire to place on record my appreciation of tlh: able and efficient
manner in which he performed his duties.
5. I also which to record my appreciation of the arrangements made by the Acting Superintendent
of Police, of th, Antigua Division, for maintaining order at all polling stations. I cannot, however, help
render tribute to the N. C. O. in charge of the Parham Police Station for his foresight in marking a
white line on the surface of the roads leading to the polling station at the Parham School to indicate the
100 yards limit beyond which persons were forbidden by law to assemble or congregate on polling day.
This was the only polling station at which this precaution was taken and the N. C. 0. must be highly
commended on his sagacity for taking this most appropriate measure the result of which was that there
was no contravention at that polling station of that provision of the law.
6. The election was carried out in the whole Colony without any untoward incident or breach of
the peace and the behaviour of the electors, as in previous elections, was orderly and commendable.
7. The buildings used as polling stations were in the main, Government owned, or Church build-
ings rented by Government and used as school houses. Only two privately owned buildings had to be
rented. There were 41 polling stations and the situation of these are set out in the Appendix to this
Report.
8. Printed Notices giving the locations of the various polling stations and the voters who were
allocated to vote at such stations were posted throughout the Colony and published in the three local
newspapers in order to give to intending voters an opportunity of learning before polling day the polling
stations at which they were to vote. In the case of the polling divisions of St. John's City (North) and
St. John's City (South) however, it was found to be impracticable to allocate the voters in those polling
divisions in the same manner as was done in the other polling divisions if an even distribution of voters
without undue inconvenience was to be attained in order to eliminate the congestion which occurred at
the Court House in the 1956 elections.
9. To this end voters in these two polling divisions were given the option of voting at any one of
the three polling stations established in these two polling divisions. However, to safeguard against the
possibility of a voter recording his or her vote at more than one polling station, Notices were posted in
each such division and in addition published in the three local newspapers warning voters that they must
not vote more than once and in no case at more than one polling station, and that any infraction of this

directive would entail, on conviction, a penalty of six months imprisonment. As a further precaution
against double voting additional poll clerks were employed to keep check on the voters in each of these
polling stations and, as a result, three cases of apparently double voting were discovered in the polling
division of St. John's City (North). Subsequent investigation of these cases, however, has elicited the
fact that they amounted to impersonation and not double voting by the same individual. No prose-
cution could be undertaken as it was found to be rather difficult to obtain with certainty evidence of
the identity of the impersonators to ensure a conviction although the bona fide registered voter in each
case was known to the Election Officers.
10. I cannot help but again draw attention to the unsatisfactory state of the Register of Voters of
the Colony as prepared in 1956. This Register was, by the Adtaptation of Laws Regulations made under
Article 107 of the Constitution of the West Indies, constituted the Register of Voters for the purpose ef
this election. It contains so many errors in, and iteration of, the names of voters that I think it is abso-
lutely essential that appropriate measures should be taken to rectify the same. In particular the itera-
tions were a source of great worry to the Returning Officer and myself in our endeavour to prevent these
voters from registering their votes at more than one polling station in the polling division in which they
were so registered. I earnestly recommend that serious consideration should be given by Government to
the abolition of the system of registration of voters and that such registration be conducted by enumera-
tion as obtains in all the other Colonies of the Windward Islands, Barbados and Trinidad.
11. I have included in the accompanying Appendix, the polling stations at which voters registered
their votes, the number of votes polled for each candidate, the number of votes counted, the number of
rejected ballot papers set aside by the respective Deputy Returning Officers and the number of names on
the List of voters for each polling division as required by section 79 (4) of the abovenamed Ordinance.
12. The Register of Voters contains the names of 18,352 persons as being registered voters in the
Colony and from the figures given in the attached Appendix it appears that only 35.17 per cent of the
voters voted at this election.
I have the honour to be,
Sir,
Yours obedient servant,
HENRY J. ELWIN,
Supervisor of Elections.
