POLICE have been passed details of an incident in the Legislative Council elections in which a voter in one of the small functional constituencies discovered apparently false documents had been submitted in his name. The Registration and Electoral Office received a complaint from a voter who arrived at the polling station and was told he could not vote there because a second set of documents had been submitted in his name for a different address. A spokesman for the office said another similar case was under investigation but no decision had been taken on whether to send it to the police. The second case was not in the same constituency. The case already referred to the police is that of a lecturer at a university who is also a member of the engineering functional constituency, which had 3,458 members on the electoral roll. After turning up to vote and being told he was at the wrong polling station, his documents were faxed to the polling station and the voter discovered other documents had been submitted with his name and ID card number. The address was different, the word 'engineering' was spelled wrongly and an incorrect, rather than forged, signature put on the form. Polling station staff were able to sort the problem out on the day and the voter was able to vote. A spokesman for the Registration and Electoral Office said two registration forms were received in one name and accepted that the academic's papers were the correct ones. Under the Boundary and Election regulations, anyone found guilty of making false or misleading declarations during the registration of electors faces up to six months in prison.
