Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 11, 1920, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE TEN THE LETHHHroGE DAILY HERALD THURSDAY, MARCH OTTAWA, Msrcli 11.- (By Can ad-1 Hugh in-! TjodueeJ Che- franchise till in house this afternoon. Tec purpose of lha bill is three-fold. j First, it files a unifoni: ir.mchiie! throughout the DDintcion; It provides a uniform method for the preparation of voters' lists; it provides a simple and satisfactory i method for the conduct of elections. In inventing the till. Mr. Guthrie! 63ifl that under Us terms the fran-; chlse hail been established upon very broad principles. The only require- ments .frould lie those of British clt- izeaship, residence- In Canada lor one and In pariiculir constituency for two months and the attaintus of the ESS of 21 years. These recjulre- rnenis Arould apply alike in the caso of male and female voters. Provincial Lilts In regard to the preparation of vot- ars' lists, the principle was i that existing provincial lists In any province where authorized by law Tor use iu provincial elections could bo Members Pledge Faithfulness to Absent Leader Program Laid Before Supporters, Said To Have Been Condensed.

In this case, however, there iris no revision or appeal, because a further provision iu the act provided that any who claimed to be 1 entitled to vote and whose name had bsen oiriiUed in a rural division would bs entitled on polling day, oa taking th! prescribed election oath, to a bal- lot paper and cast his vote. Election Machinery Machinery for holding an election, as provided in the bill, was not very different from that at presont in iibc. Thera were one or two Innovations, however. The act proposed to abolish the office of the clerk of the crown In chancery and to create instead, a ehlst electoral office. This office .would have charge of elociioos and the duties of the officer In charge would be very similar to those of the general returning officer in tlie election of 1917. He ivould be permanent official. The. hill aUo provides for Voe holding of advanced polls in order to enable rallwaymen, sailors and others who were unable to vote on election day. to cast their ballots. The period fiied between nomination day and polling day, by the bill, was 14 days. Mr. Guthrie closed by- saying that the Intention of the bill was to bring about uniformity la voting through out Canada and to promote safety and simplicity. -An examination of the bill would, be thought, convince mem- bers tiat it was founded upon princi- ples of equality and Justice. In answer to bv- W. D. Euler, Mr, Guthrie stated thai per- precluded Doting .nndep the Naturalization Act would not le permitted to vote by the new law. He also said that any person, disquali- fied by reason of race front voting in provincial elections, would also -be disqualified In Dominion tlectione.
