Report On The Legislative Council Bye-Election

21ST. FEBRUARY, 1958.

The Honourable E. M. Gairy, member for the Electoral District of the Parish of St. George in the
General Elections which was held on the 24th September, 1957, was convicted of an offence declared
by Section 70 (1) of the Legislative Council (Elections) Ordinance, 1951, to be an illegal practice,
thereby causing a vacancy in that constituency and the necessity for a bye-election.

Appointment of Returning Officer.
2. On 21st January, 1958, Mr. S. J. Bain, Solicitor St. George's was appointed Returning Officer
for this Bye-Election. His Election Clerk was Mr. L. C. Coard.

Writ of Election.
3. The bye-election was commenced by the issue on 16th January, 1958, of a Writ by His Honour
the Administrator directing the Returning Officer to hold the nomination of candidates and, if necessary
a poll on the dates specified therein, i.e., 3rd February, 1958, and 21st February, 1958 respectively.

Election Procedure.
4. Immediately upon the issue of the Writ by the Administrator, a notice was published in the
Government Gazette, the "West Indian" and the "Torchlight" newspapers notifying the electors of the
dates upon which the nomination of candidates and polling day will be held and of other particulars
relating to the bye-election. The Returning Officer then made the necessary arrangements using the
official lists of Electors as prepared for the General Elections held on 24th September, 1957.
5. The Returning Officer received the necessary instructions from the Supervisor of Elections and
was supplied with all the necessary election material. With the exception of two polling stations the
others.were all used in the 1957 General Elections.
6. The same Presiding Officers and Poll Clerks for this Electoral District in the General Elections
1957 were appointed. The office staff appointed was as follows :-
Mr. N. Gooding,
Miss Paula Neckles -Typist,
Mr. B. Callendar -Messenger.
7. Posters describing the offences under the Ordinance and Notices "How to Vote"-giving
instructions in the use of symbols were posted up all over the constituency as was done in the General

Nomination of Candidates.

8. The following candidates were nominated :-
Juliana Aird,
Merrydale A. Bullen,
Leonard A. Bullen,
Lincoln A. Radix.
Ballot Papers.

9. After the nominations had been received and after a meeting of the candidates to allocate
symbols the ballot papers were printed by the Government Printing Office with the relative symbols
opposite the names of the candidates. The symbols used were as follows :-
Juliana Aird Motor Car
M. A. Bullen Shoe
L. A. Purcell Bicycle
L. A. Radix Hand.

Results of Election.

10. The results of the polls were :-
Juliana Aird 61 Votes.
M. A. Bullen 627
L. A. Purcell 838 ,
L. A. Radix 2,126 ,,
The votes by polling stations are shown in the attached statement.
11. Dr. Radix having secured the highest number of votes was formally declared as a member for
he Parish of St. George for the remaining period of the life of the Legislative Council.


12. One candidate, Miss Juliana Aird, failed to poll more than one-eighth of the total number of
ballots cast and accordingly she lost her deposit.
13. Under this head I should like to express my appreciation of the Windward Islands Broad-
casting Service in broadcasting the results of the poll.
Conduct of the Elections.

14. Election Day was without any untoward incident and the proceedings went off in an orderly
manner. The percentage of the electorate was lower than that of the General Elections 1957. In
1957 66% went to the Polls as against 46% at this Bye-election. There were 379 ballots rejected in 1957
as against 150 in the bye-election.
Election Documents.

15. The election documents required to be kept in safe custody by the Supervisor of Elections
under the provisions of Section 55 (1) of the Ordinance were lodged in a box, locked and sealed and
placed in the Treasury vault where the documents in respect of past elections had been stored.
Election Expenses.

16. Due entirely to the fact that much of the printing and advertisement for the bye-election was so
closely interwoven with that of the Federal Elections, I am unable to give an accurate picture of the
expenses of the bye-election. The figures quoted as far as printing is concerned are therefore not

17. Unfortunately, at this bye-election it was not possible to take advantage of the provisions of
the Legislative Council (Elections) (Amendment) Ordinance, 1957, which provides for the annual
revision of the electoral lists between 1st February and 31st March, and so afford those who were not
eligible to vote at the General Elections an opportunity of doing so at the bye-election, and as a result
there were complaints.
