THE SUPPLEMENTARY ROLLS
We have been courteously supplied with this additional information regarding tho new electoral rolls : Oamaru supplementary roll contains 609 names. . . Bmoe supplementary toll contains 906 names, and 6,118 or. the main mil, or a total of 6,727. Chalmers supplementary roll contains 1,244 names.
A report has been circulated to the effect that persons who early took out absent voters’ permits will not be able to use them, but this is absolutely incorrect. Wo advise those who tool: out such 1 K ' I '- mits to stand by their rights, and on polling day to claim the exercise ot such appear that very many persons have been disfranchised, inasmuch as their names ware struck otf the main roll for some inscrutable reason, though they actually voted at the General Election of 1911. All who occupy this unfortunate position are reminded that the electoral law has been amended so as to permit them to vote on making a declaration before tho proper officer that no or she did actually vote on that occasion.
