  1. This election was not legitimate. The online ballots should not be trusted/counted. If they were not, the mayor would have been decided differently. People should be asking for a recount without the online ballots included.

    1. I see someone’s pot delivery has arrived.
      Get with the times, who has time to run to a polling station these days Sorry, not sorry, your candidate was unsuccessful. 🙄

    2. What? Why wouldn’t the online votes be counted? If you take them away are all the people who voted online going to have to go in and re vote on paper? Myself and everyone I know voted online.

    3. So, you feel that all the people who voted online should lose their right to have there vote count in this election? Care to explain to me why?

  2. The hardest part of this election for me, was watching the couple from Dougal media try and do a live newscast. 💘

  3. Pino, I understand you’re relatively new to the news world, but I would have preferred listening to you as opposed to the other site. You should have been there, Brother.
    Just my 2 cents.
