Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
There are 27 houses and something like 50 people in this hamlet, including maybe 10 kids of non-voting age.

I don't object to a postal ballot if the logistics make it poor value. But I do mind if the postal process is overcomplicated.

Is it gerrymandering or incompetence? Hard to say. The case for the prosecution is that move to postal voting was introduced after the council gained a solid Tory majority. And the form really was designed incredibly badly.

But for the defence, the main towns still have polling stations, and I'd guess the votes from a few villages won't swing a seat unless voting is extremely close - which it usually isn't out here.
