Electronic voting training sessions cancelled.

Training sessions for staff who were to oversee electronic voting in June have been cancelled, according to the county’s Returning Officer Louise Mc Donagh. The cancellations follow the publication of the report by the independent commission on electronic voting which says e-voting should not be introduced for June`s elections. 850 staff in Kerry were to oversee e-voting; with around half due to start training in the coming days. All planned sessions have been cancelled including training scheduled to take place in Killarney tomorrow. Meanwhile the electronic voting roadshow due in the county next Wednesday has also been cancelled.
