Election legislation solution in order

There has been considerable input on talk shows on prevention of the release of election results from one part of the country when polls in another part have not been closed.

The suggestion is that with electronic media being available to most people, legislation and its implementation preventing the release of such information is now near impossible.

To my mind, which is largely unencumbered by the electronic media (I don’t have to know what key to touch to retrieve something that is located between my ears), the solution is simple. Do not allow votes to be counted until after the last poll has been closed.

I suggest that the chief electoral officer ask that legislation be enacted to that effect.
