One point struck. Oddly enough, with more than 32,000 voting papers issued there were only 89 spoiled.
Yet there were 89 spoiled ballot papers in just the Grange ward at the last town council election -with fewer than 2000 papers issued!
The number of spoiled papers was bigger than the win or lose factor in a couple of Letchworth wards.
Is it just that NHDC is rubbish or was there something more sinister afoot?
NHDC have never provide an explanation as to why this happened
