Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 2, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Monday, 2, 1974 Honor plan for voters may be tried in city A voter declaration system that reportedly worked well the first time it was tried in Red Deer may be used here in the next civic election in 1977. Aid. Bob Tarleck said he'll ask at city council's meeting tonight that a similar system be tried here. In Red Deer both property owners and renters who were eligible to vote signed a declaration of eligibility at their polling stations on elec- tion day and received their ballots. No voters lists of any sort were used, said Red Deer City Clerk Bob Stollings in a telephone interview. were quite pleased with Mr. Stollings said. "The deputy returning of- ficers at the polls said they had no problems and it went smoother and quicker than in previous years when we used a list of electors." Until this year, Red Deer had used an enumeration system to compile its voters list, Mr. Stollings said. "There were one or two comments this time that the new system was possibly open to a person voting at more than one he said. "But I was not overly concerned with it myself, because it would have been done under the old system. "If someone was missed in the enumeration, he could be sworn in at the polls and if he wanted to perjure himself he could have voted at more than one poll." Mr Stollings admitted he had no way of knowing if anyone did vote more than once in Red Deer's last elec- tion. "But I have no reason to believe anyone he said. "If the question did come up, we could check our records." Every voter's name and address and where he voted was recorded, Mr. Stollings said As one precautionary measure, deputy returning of- ficers were hired wherever possible to work in the areas in which they lived, he added "They knew the majority of the people in their area." Aid Tarleck said he would ask for the voter declaration system as an amendment to his earlier resolution for an enumeration system. All citizens eligible to vote would swear a declaration before the deputy returning officer that they are eligible as defined by the Municipal Elections Act, Aid. Tarleck said. They would also declare that they had not cast another ballot in the election, and that they are aware of the penalties for contravening the act which involves fairly hefty fines he said. The city clerk would no longer be required to prepare a voters' list, but he would record all the names and addresses of those who voted, said Aid. Tarleck. "It would remove the ele- ment of discrimination which exists under the present system against non property owners and it would be more he said. Aid. Tarleck and other can- didates criticized the voter registration system during the Oct. 16 civic election cam- paign. NOMA OUTDOOR DECORLITES (Star Only) Colors Red, Gold, Blue Bulbs included. PRICED AT Q 95 Call Hardware 327-5767 They said it discriminated against those who don't own property since it required them to register at city hall in order to be eligible to vote while names of property owners were automatically transferred from the city assessment roll to the voters list. "I'm still hearing a lot of unfair innuendos implying that renters are somehow not as solid citizens as property owners and should be made to register to Aid. Tarleck said. that if they don't have the gumption to go down to city hall and register they don't deserve to vote. "I find that kind of thinking a little incredible. "There should be equal op- portunity for everyone to vote." Wrecks result in minor injuries DOWNTOWN Three accidents on the weekend in Lethbridge caused about damage but only resulted in minor injuries. Larry W. Wyrostok, 24, 602 28th St. S., has been charged with driving with a blood alcohol level greater than 08 per cent following an accident Sunday at p.m. in the 2900 block of North Parkside Drive. Lethbridge city police Aides' rates to be equal Certified nursing aides in Alberta should now get the dominant rate paid their male counterparts, the president of the Alberta Certified Nursing Aide Association said today. In a telephone interview from Edmonton, Doreen Gares said the Alberta Hospital Association's proposal would provide pay rates of to a month, the same as registered nurs- ing orderlies, retroactive to Oct. 1. The current pay scale for nursing aides is to a month. She said the proposal is en- tirely separate from wage negotiations, which start Tuesday. Nor will it prejudice complaints to the human rights commission against about 14 hospitals where cer- tified nursing aides are paid less than registered nursing orderlies. A news report from Ed- monton earlier said the new pay scale is for nursing orderlies. Carl Pickles of Lethbridge, president of the Alberta Registered Nursing Orderlies Association, said the increase had nothing to do with orderlies. The orderlies are seeking equal wages for the same work across the province in heir negotiations, he said. allege Mr. Wyrostok was travelling west on North Parkside Drive when he lost control of his car in the 2900 block and hit a light standard.
