    So does the integrity of a general election not need preserving?
    I'm sorry? General elections are verified too?

    But the pre verification results are published too, which means that clearly it isn't important enough for preservation.

    I will consider publishing the pre-verification result (or at least revealing the poll) when voting closes.

    But with the elections the exit poll gives us information bout the demographics of ineligible voters and to have a running poll it needs to be included. Revealing this early and unconfirmed is pointless and adds nothing.

    Can Mr speaker Saracen's Fez confirm if today he has requested a list of voters for the speakership poll, allowing him to verify and reveal results tonight, or will he not be requesting a list until tomorrow after the poll has closed?

    I'll be requesting a list of voters when voting has closed.

    The result here is not going to be affected by one or two ineligible votes. I will therefore be declaring it tonight.

    Yes, but that's like comparing a newborn baby to Trump in the US election... you expect Trump to at least get some votes, a newborn baby none!
