Your Vote is Secure
By Louise Jackson, MBE, JP, MP for the One Bermuda Alliance, December 16, 2012
Fellow seniors, this is Louise Jackson assuring you that your vote is protected against anyone seeing how you marked your ballot.
There are no cameras in the voting booth, or any other device that can take a picture of your mark on the ballot.
There are officials guarding your vote. No one can see your ballot or know how you voted.
Also, I am told that some seniors and other residents have been led to believe they will lose their housing or jobs if they don’t vote for a certain party or individual.
That is not correct. Please be assured that you are safe and secure in your government housing and jobs. It is your right and your privilege to vote for who you want to vote for.
Do not be frightened. Your vote is safe and closely guarded.
