Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 4, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, November 4, 1972 THE IETHBRIDOE HIRALB IS Voters confused by new ballots Song-and-dance man dies at 77 OTTAWA (CP) It appears that more ballots than ever be- fore were rejected in the Oct. 30 federal be- cause of confusion over the new ballot form. Checks in a number of rid- ings across the country show that the totals for rejected bal- lots, while no higher in some, rose drastically in others over the previous election in 1968. In Quebec, the separatist Parti Quebecois urged voters to abstain from voting or deliber- ately spoil their ballots as a re- jection of federalism. Although some voters com- plied, a cross-Canada survey by The Canadian Press indicates that the spoiled-ballot increase was not restricted to Quebec. There were exceptions, such as the New Brunswick riding of Saint John-Lancaster where fewer spoiled ballots turned up than in 1968, but returning offi- cers in many ridings reported sharp increases. CITES SPACING Chief Electoral Officer Jean- Marc Hamel sadd in an inter- view the spacing of candidates followed by large white have been a major factor. Most returning officers agreed. Instead of putting their X or other mark in the white circle at the side of the new black- bordered many voters apparently followed the old practice and placed it imme- diately after the printed name. Some marked it both places. Although voters were not re- stricted to an X in this election but could use any dis- tinguishing mark they chose ballots were declared void marked anywhere but the circle. Most ridings had more eli gible voters than 1968 but the proportion of rejected ballots still was far higher in many cases. In the Manitoba riding of Lin coin, the total soared to from 324 in 1968. Vancouver Kingsway reported re- jected ballots, up from 269.- Oth ers also up sharply included Calgary South 1.847 from 247 Peterborough 797 from 212 _ ira Falls from 281 261 from 85. A sampling of Quebec rid- ngs, which included a number if provincial constituencies vhere a heavy separatist vote was recorded in the province's 070 election, showed roughly imilar increases, indicating he PQ anti-campaign had no dramatic effect. Some Quebec returning offi- cers said the PQ drive may lave been a factor but the in- creases seemed largely the re- sult of confusion over the new jallot. The total in Drummond, which Trade Minister Jean-Luc 'epin won in official counting y just five votes, was compared with 324 in 1968. Other Quebec comparisons: Frontenac from 381, Chi- coutimi from 435, Lap- ointe from 408, Montreal Ahuntsic from Mon- treal Bourassa 4.811 from Hull from 704. The PQ request that voters stay home from the polls as an- other form of protest appeared to have little significant effect in terms of voter turnouts. NFLD. TURNOUT LOWEST Seventy per cent of eligible Quebecers cast ballots com- pared to 74 per cent nationally. The lowest provincial turn out was 62 per cent in New- foundland while Prince Edwarc Island had the per cent. In Saint John-Lancaster, where the total of rejected bal- lots dropped, Returning Officer James O'Brien said a good pre- election advertising campaign helped eliminate confusion. Mrs. Jean Atkinson, return- ing officer for Calgary South said there was no valid reason for errors. "There were pictures on the walls, in booths and on circu lars showing a big X in the circle. People don't listen an ship. In 1935, Richman set a spee record for amphibian planes o 100.5 miles an hour, as well as an amphibian altitude record o 22.000 feet. Richman's romantic life also made news, particularly his af fair with screen star Clara Bow. He said later that he gav her a Isotta-Franchim car for a wedding present, onrj to have her marry Rex Bell cowboy star and later lieuten ant-governor of Nevada. He married lesser-known women: chorus girl Yvonne Ep stein in 1918; snowgirl-heires Hazel Forbes in 1938; dance Yvonne Day in 1943. All th marriages ended in divorce. A son survives.
