Ramsey polling card error cost almost £3,000

Almost £3,000 was spent reprinting polling cards that contained an error during last year's House of Keys General Election.

Some voters in Ramsey received a polling card which included the wrong polling station details.

The Cabinet Office had to reissue the cards in the run up to the vote, costing £2953.79 excluding VAT.

Policy and Reform Minister Chris Thomas revealed the figure in this week's sitting of the House of Keys following an enquiry from Ramsey MHK Lawrie Hooper.
