Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 13, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 64 THE ITIHBR1DGE HERAID Wedneljoy, September 13, 1972 One element missing in the federal election By JOHN BEST j OTTAWA (CP) One cle- ment ol drama ill some touch- and go contests will bs missing for this federal election. The armed forces voting ma- cliinery has been altered, This lime, the votes of about service personnel and de- pendents already will have been counted, plus those from about public servants and dependents outside the country, category voting for the first time. In the old days, it was the service vote arriving after the regular general election that might tip the scales in tight constituency battles. Changes to the Canada Elec- tions Act are responsible for the new pattern, including giv- ing the vote It- personnel of ex- ternal affairs, trade, immigra- tion, health and other depart- ments posted abroad. Their disfranchisement had been a sore point for years, es- ipecially since voting proce- dures did exist for their mili- tary counterparts. The elaborate voting appa- ratus extends as far as Hanoi. THREE WEEKS EARLY The key to gelling voles in for ?leclion day, including Uiosc from dislant places such as Cyprus and Kashmir, lies in having nominnlion day 21 days before voting day instead of 14 days as in previous elections. This enables service voting to take place over a six-day pe- riod ending nine days tefore the election, rather than over a similar period ending just days ahead of the general vote. The bulk of the persons enfranchised by the new rules are from the external affairs and Irade departments. The. intricate operation is being co-ordinaled by Ihe ex- ternal affairs department As Jack Dowis, assistant chief electoral officer, puts it; "There used to be complaints about diplomats abroad not having the vote. Now they can vote, but they're sure doing all the work." The drill involves, for in- srance, getting in the votes of two Canadians in Seoul, Korea, two in Vientiane, Laos, and four in Hanoi, North yielnmn. In one Bra- polling station will be set up to permit a single Canadian to vote, and he'll likely be his own deputy reluming officer. He is A. L. Graham, a second secrelnty and vice-consul. The main body of Ihe Canadian em- bassy has nol yet moved to Brazil's new capilal from Rio. Tiallots, in sealed envelopes ivill be counled at London, Ed- monton, Ottawa and Halifax over a four-day period ending on the Saturday preceding elec- tion day.
