Report on the Legislative Council General Elections, 1957.



INTRODUCTION.

I was appointed Supervisor of Elections in respect of the General Elections for this year, in
January, and as there was no elections office I set about to find one and to have it equipped. I am
thankful to Mr. W. E. Donelan, Competent Authority, for offering me accommodation in a portion of
the premises occupied by him on Young Street, St. George's. This, however, proved much too small
and hot as an electoral office.
My clerk and typist received his baptism of employment in my office, but after a couple months
the first and only experienced member of my staff was appointed, in the person of Mr. Nicholas
Gooding. Entirely new furniture had to be provided and instead of this being charged to "Furniture,
Government Buildings", the elections vote had to bear the cost.

1. Legislative.

The elections were conducted in pursuance of the 1951 Legislative Council (Elections) Ordinance,
No. 10 of 1951, as amended by Ordinance No. 17 of 1951, and S.R. & O. No. 54 of 1951. There was
one amendment of the principal Ordinance this year to wit No. 1 of 1957, which extends the provisions
dealing with illegal practices, and two amending S.R. & O.'s which deal with symbols and give candi-
dates for election an opportunity, for the first time, of agreeing among themselves on the choice of
symbols, and giving the semblance to the assigning of symbols according to political parties.
The Proclamation of this year as election year and of 15th May, 1957, as the "Appointed Day"
as required by Section 4 (1) and Rule 2 of the Ordinance was the signal for the setting in motion of the
Election procedure.

2. Electoral Districts.

The number of electoral districts remains the same as in 1951, and 1954 namely eight, and naming
them in somewhat circular order from South of the island and proceeding Westward, they are :-
1. The Town of St. George,
2. The Parish of St. George,
3. The Parishes of St. John and St. Mark,
4. The Parish of St. Patrick,
5. The Parish of St. Andrew (North),
6. The Parish of St. Andrew (South),
7. The Parish of St. David, with,
8. Carriacou including Petit Martinique as the only one outside the circle and
detached from the mainland.
A year after the 1954 elections the island was visited by a severe hurricane, as a result of which
many rivers changed their course and there were innumerable slides throughout the island. Thousands
of houses were destroyed. I therefore felt that as a result of physical changes and population dis-
placement there was need for great care in the fixing of Polling Divisions.
Registration Officers were therefore asked to bear these facts in mind as also the heavy exodus of
people within the last 18 months and to endeavour to so describe .these Divisions that they
contained as near as possible the desire 450 persons. The assistance of Public Works Road Officers
was again sought. Notwithstanding this endeavour there were still divisions which contained as
high as 600 and more persons and many with greatly lower numbers. The manner in which enumeration
was performed in many instances and Index Books compiled left a lot to be desired. The
same comment applies to the manner in which certain election officers performed their duties
during the early stages of the election programme.
3. Polling Stations.

Polling Stations were allocated in the respective electoral districts as follows :-

Electoral district of the Town of St. George .. 10
,, ,, ,, the Parish of St. George .. 22
,, St. John-St. Mark .. .. 15
,, St. Patrick .. .. .. 13
,, ,, St. Andrew (North) .. .. 12
,, St. Andrew (South) .. .. 13
,, St. David's .. .. .. 11
,, Carriacou .. .. .. 11
4. Appointments.

The Ordinance provides that the Magistrate of each Magisterial District should be the Regis-
tration Officer of the electoral district in which he works, but as all the Magistrates have jurisdiction
over more than one electoral district, assistant registration officers were appointed by the Administrator
in the case of the electoral districts of Carriacou, the Parish of St. George, the Parishes of St. John and
St. Mark and St. Andrew (North). The same Registration Officers served as Returning Officers,
upon appointment by the Administrator on the recommendation of the Supervisor of Elections.
A list of these is appended.











Enumerators were appointed by the Registration Officers and Supervisors of Enumerators for each
electoral district were appointed by the Administrator on the recommendation of the Supervisor
of Elections.
Presiding Officers and Poll Clerks who were responsible for the Elections on Polling Day were
appointed by the Returning Officers with the approval of the Administrator.
Each Returning Officer had the services of an Election Clerk who was appointed by the Supervisor
of Elections.
Election Writs were issued to the Returning Officers on the 22nd day of August, 1957, for the
elections on the 24th September, 1957.

5. Enumeration.

This constitutes an important aspect of the work in preparation of the elections. One enumerator
was assigned to each polling division of which there were 107 in the whole island. The desired
size of a division, on a population basis, according to the Elections Ordinance, is 450 or thereabout.
It required a team of men and women of integrity and efficiency who could exercise some influence
over the electorate to induce the people to register. On previous occasions enumerators were paid
7 cents per name enumerated, but this time there was a demand for an increase, and with the view to
obtaining satisfactory service I recommended 10 cents per name. Government approved my recom-
mendation, but I regret to state I am not at all satisfied that my objective was achieved. The com-
plaints of previous election years were again heard on this occasion, but I am satisfied that at this period
of preparation for the elections, people had not yet begun to regard the elections with any degree of
seriousness, and many were positively apathetic, going so far as to refuse to be registered. As election
day approached and candidates and their agents became active, those who refused to be enumerated at
the proper time were forced to the necessity of obtaining claim cards to have their names inserted in
the lists prepared by enumerators, upon revision by the Registration Officers.
The observations made by the Supervisor of Elections in his Report on the 1954 'General
Elections are substantially true in respect of what again occurred this year.

6. Preparation of Electors List.

The preliminary lists of the electorate in each electoral district had to be completed and certified
by the Enumerators between the 15th May and the 27th May, 1957, and four typed copies of the same
prepared by the respective Registration Officer. Index Books with perforated duplicate forms
were supplied the Enumerators in which to write the names of the Electorate. The services of a
number of persons were engaged to dothe typing of the lists, two copies of which in respect of each
polling division were posted up in conspicuous places in each polling division, one copy retained
by the Registration Officer and the fourth sent to the Supervisor of Elections for the purpose of being
printed and made available to candidates and to the public at a very nominal figure. All this,
including the posting up of the lists in the various polling divisions, was completed by the 15th
June, 1957.
Just about this time it became necessary for me to go to Barbados in the interest of my health and
Mr. W. E. Donelan who had knowledge of election work kindly undertook, with the approval of
His Honour the Administrator, to carry on for me during the period of my absence-roughly three
weeks.
Thereafter, the lists having remained posted for twelve days, the Registration Officers proceeded
with the work of Revision of the said lists and, for that purpose, issued Notices of Claims to be
registered, of Objections to names on the lists and of Objections to Claims for inclusion in the lists.
The lists were accordingly revised, after the other requirements of the Regulations made under the
Elections Ordinance were complied with, and by the 23rd July, 1957, they were certified by the Regis-
tration Officers and copies sent to the Returning Officers, a list of whom is to be found under
Appendix I.
I am happy to be able to state that for the first time the finally revised lists of electors were printed
at the Government Printery in Grenada under the capable management of Mr. Owen Miller, whom
I desire to thank in a special way for his co-operation in this respect and generally, for the expediting
of the large volume of printing work that had to be undertaken for the elections.
The finally revised lists revealed a total of 37,738 registered voters for the Colony.

7. Election Writs.

Presiding Officers, Poll Clerks and Election Clerks having been appointed to supervise the actual
elections on Polling Day, His Honour the Administrator issued his Election Writs through me on the
22nd day of August, 1957, and proclaimed the 4th day of September, 1957, and the 24th day of the
same month as Nomination Day and Polling (or Election Day) respectively, and notice was given in the
Government Gazette and the local newspapers for the required period.

Measures for the Education of the Public.

Various methods for educating not only the public but also the election officers charged with the
work of the elections were adopted. The Government Information Service newsletter "The Citizen"
of recent establishment and the local newspapers "The West Indian" and "The Torchlight" were good
enough to publish articles on various aspects of the election procedure, as sent to them by me. They
also of themselves published articles not only informing the public of their responsibility in
connection with the elections but also exhorting the electorate to show their appreciation of the











privilege of adult sufferage which has been secured for them. I beg to record my thanks to these
organs. The Windward Islands Broadcasting Service was also of service to my office and to the
Government in putting over occasional talks and on Election Day-really night-broadcasting the
results of the election as they were received by the Supervisor of Elections over a hurriedly
improvised but efficient telephone service between the parishes, Police Headquarters and the electoral
office, for which Cable & Wireless must be thanked. Mr Ed Watson and his wife reinforced W.I.B.S.
personnel here headed by Mr. Clifford Palmer, and, with the necessary apparatus set up in a room
adjacent to the electoral office, did a splendid job. Successful candidates and out-going members of
Council were interviewed shortly over the same set-up immediately after the final results of the election
were known, about 10.30 p.m. that night. Mr. Clifford Palmer, assisted by Dr. Cocozza, must be
thanked for manning a transmitting set from Sauteurs, St. Patrick's, which was the only parish not
connected by telephone.
Booklets of instructions were circularised among the senior election officers and Enumerators and
lectures were delivered by the Supervisor to Enumerators, Presiding Officers, Poll Clerks and Election
Clerks throughout the Colony, with the exception of Carriacou, where the District Officer did the
needful. The Honourable Attorney-General, Mr. Keith Alleyne, Q.C., also delivered a lecture to all
election officers at the Court House on the 20th September. This was timely and well attended.
Lectures were also delivered to the electorate in every parish and in several districts giving them
the fullest information concerning election procedure and how to vote with reference to the symbols
to be used and the making of their crosses. These were exemplified by the showing of a film entitled
"How to Vote", for which I have to thank the Information Officer, Mr. Stevenson, and the Mobile
Film Unit for including me in their programme. Attendance at the public lectures could have been
better.
Another method adopted in educating the public was printed posters which were liberally posted
in prominent places all over the Colony containing "Instructions on how to Vote, Election offences
and all the other don'tt" in connection with the Election Laws.
9. Nomination.

As already stated, Nomination Day was 4th September, 1957, and nominations had to be accom-
plished between 9 and 12 noon that day and $120 in cash deposited by each candidate. There were
three candidates in each of six electoral districts, four in the electoral district of St. John/St. Mark and
two in the electoral district of Carriacou-a total of twenty four, seven of whom were members of the
last Legislative Council. Five of the seven retained their seats. There were three lady candidates,
none of whom was successful. Four candidates lost their deposits.
10. Election Day Results.

The day opened very bright and remained so throughout. Polling commenced at 7 a.m. and
continued until the official closing hour, 5 p.m. To the credit of the electorate, it must be said that
their behaviour was very good. The Police, augmented by the G.V.C., who were on the move through-
out the island from 5 a.m. to 11 p.m. had an easy time. The Electoral Office remained open to receive
the results which were taken from the Preliminary Statements of the Poll made by the Presiding Officers
immediately after the close of the respective Polling Stations. By 10.30 p.m. with the exception of one,
the results from all the electoral districts including Carriacou were received at the electoral office
in St. George's.
Five of the seven members of the last Legislative Council who contested the elections retained
their seats. There were three lady candidates-this being the first time in the Grenada Elections that
ladies contested seats-but none was successful. Four candidates lost their deposits.
The closest margin in votes was in the Town of St. George where Mr. T. A. Marryshow (who
has been a member of Council for over thirty years) secured a majority of 15 votes over his runner-up
Mr. E. A. Mitchell. In the St. David's constituency there was a margin of 23 between the successful
candidate, Mr. Thomas Joseph Gibbs, and his runner-up Mr. Daniel Witson Radix. The largest
majority margin in the elections occurred in the Parish of St. George in which Mr. Eric M. Gairy
scored a lead of 2,043 over Mr. Lennard Purcell who polled 955.
There is an appreciable improvement in the average of rejected votes this time-roughly 5 %o-as
compared with the 1951 and 1954 elections, in which the percentages were 12% and 9% respectively.
The lowest percentage of 1 % is recorded in the St. Patrick's constituency, while the highest of 8 %
is recorded in the Parish of St. George, this, however, is a large improvement on the 1954 figure of 18 %.
It will be seen from the Tables annexed that there is a commendable over-all improvement in the
electorate who voted, as compared with 1951 and 1954 when the percentages were 69% and 67%
respectively, while this-time 93 % was recorded in the Parish of St. George and Carriacou, and the peak
percentage of 99 was reached in the Parish of St. Patrick. In all the other electoral districts percen-
tages of 95 and over were recorded.
Four election "Appeals" or Petitions have been filed by four candidates who might be referred to
as "Runners-up" in the results of the elections. It is not known if these have gone beyond the stage
of "filing and service".
11. General.

Provision has been made by an amendment of the Legislative Council (Elections) Ordinance
No. 1 of 1957, for the annual preparation of preliminary Lists of electors by Registration Officers
between the 1st day of February and the 31st day of March in each year after the year 1957. By the
procedure laid down in this amending Ordinance electoral lists will be kept up to date, so that at the











end of the life of the present Council in five year's time there should be no necessity for a general
enumeration but merely to adopt the lists as have been kept and brought up to date immediately
before a General Election.

12. Election material and Ballot Boxes Etc.

Election material of the 1954 Elections were destroyed upon my opening my office in January.
Many of the Ballot Boxes and a few of the screens which were used in the 1954 elections were found
to be in a damaged condition in the possession of the various Police Stations, and could not be used
without expensive repairs which were effected by the Public Works Department. Additional boxes
and screens had to be provided to meet the increased Polling Stations. A couple cupboards had to be
provided for Registration Officers to keep election material.
Symbols.-Of the symbols prescribed by the Amending S.R. & 0. the following were used again
but the order in which they are mentioned is of no practical significance since candidates electioneering
under the banner of certain Political Parties or Bodies agreed on the choice of symbols to be used by
such candidates in all the constituencies according to their allegiance to the said Political Parties or
Bodies. There was a definite awakening to the idea of party politics even though there are not many
Political Parties with their own Constitution, or registered as such.


13. Expenditure.
In 1951 and 1954 there was only one daily newspaper in Grenada. This year there are two and
therefore instead of advertisements for the purposes of the elections being in one newspaper, advertis-
ments were made in both, and it must be remembered that advertising rates have gone up steeply in
recent years. Great vigilance was exercised over the Elections Vote as the Supervisor was not desirous
of asking for a supplementary vote.
It will be observed that there was no assistant Supervisor of Elections on this occasion.
Enumerators were paid 10 cents per name enumerated instead of 7 cents as on previous election
years.
I believe printers' overtime fees were also on a higher basis this election year because of higher
salaries which now obtain in the printing department.
Polling Divisions were 107 as compared with 100 in 1954, resulting in higher expenses on Presiding
Officers, Poll Clerks and Rental of Polling Stations and for providing additional Ballot Boxes and
screens etc.
Notwithstanding increased expenditure under the above heads, the cost of this year's elections will
be found to be only about $400 or so in excess of the 1954 elections, and to have left an unexpended
balance of $7,000 to $8,000 on the vote provided. The details of expenditure are given in
Appendix V.
In conclusion, I desire to thank the Honourable Attorney-General for his readiness in discussing
and settling any legal point which arose, the Returning Officers for their co-operation, the members of
of my very small staff and especially Mr. Nicholas Gooding who because of his experience was of great
assistance to me, for the part they have played in the running of the election office, the Superintendent
of Police and his men who, notwithstanding the quiet which prevailed on election day, must have been
responsible for the good order which characterized the elections; the newspapers including the Infor-
mation Service organ "Citizen" for their service in keeping the public constantly informed of their
duties and responsibilities in connection with the elections; Mr. W. G. Donelan who kindly acted for
me as already stated; Windward Island Broadcasting Service for their splendid service generally, but
particularly in broadcasting the results of the elections and, last but not least, the Foreman Printer and
his staff. Were it not for the efficient management of his printer by Mr. Miller the printing of the
finally revised lists of voters done for the first time in Grenada, could not, in my opinion, have been
