Election in the offing…

There is an election in the offing here in Ireland. However there are (or rather should be) some concerns still about the quality of the electoral register.

Over on the IQ Network site there is a short article about the importance of timeliness of information as a measure of its quality and accuracy..

Also, on the Labour Party website there is a piece about issues uncovered in the door to door scrap and rework cleanup that was done late last year on the Electoral register…

All in all I have an uneasy feeling, particularly as the fundamental root causes don’t seem to have been addressed.
