]Report on the Election to the House of Representatives
of The West Tndies.
8th April, 1958
I have the honour to submit herewith my Report as reqired by section 79 (4) of the Antigua Constitution and Elections Ordinance, 1951, on the election held On the 25th March, 1958 for the purpose 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 w,!re prepared by the Supervisor of Elections, and these Notes were supplemented by a lecture to, and di-cussions 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 Rieturning Officer (Mr. A. E. L. WILLIAMIS) in supervising the election arrangements and ensuring that the election materials were made available to all polling stations is gratefully acknowledged ind, I desire to place on record my appreciation of th: able and effecient manner in which he performed his duties.
5. 1 also which to record my appreciation of the arrangements made by the Acting Superintendent of Police, of th,3 Antigua Division, for maintaining order at all polling stations. I cannot, however, hell, render tribute to the N. C. 0. 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 buildings 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 Convictiou, 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 prosecution 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 bonafide registerd 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 Adtiptation 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 absolutelv essential that appropriate measures should be taken to rectify the same. In particular the iterations 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 enumeration as obtains in all the other Colonies of the Windward Islands, Barbados and Trinidad.
11. I have ineludvd in the accompanying Appendix, the polling stations at which voters registered their votes, the uliniber 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,
Yours obedient servant,
