Scrutineers can wear party badges – strange but true.

I was quite surprised to see a scrutineer in Island Bay wearing a Labour party rosette. I challenged this with an official – seems this is allowable.  I subsequently looked up the scrutineer handbook and indeed this is fine. Interesting. (If it had been a National party rosette I would still have asked the question.)

Anecdotally I have heard that some schools have considered emailing parents suggesting they vote Labour – I suspect this is not appropriate.
