[font='Roboto Slab', Cambria, Georgia, 'Times New Roman', Times, serif]Independent candidate claims election was ‘rigged’[/font]




[font=Roboto, 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]A defeated Mayo candidate in the general election is to launch a High Court bid to have the constituency’s result declared null and void and a new election called. [/font]
[font=Roboto, 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]
Independent candidate Gerry O’Boyle received just 126 first preference votes, but he claims ‘there was a thousand votes robbed off me’. [/font]

[font=Roboto, 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]
Mr O’Boyle further claims that he lost a lot of votes in Claremorris and Ballyhaunis, claiming votes went ‘missing’ sometime between the polling stations closing on Friday night and the count starting in the Royal Theatre in Castlebar on Saturday morning. [/font]

[font=Roboto, 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]
Ballyhaunis-based O’Boyle said he is lodging High Court application papers this week and applying to get the ‘General Election Mayo four-seater recalled as a new election’. [/font]

[font=Roboto, 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]
“I’ve had people contact me from all over the county who said they voted for me and it didn’t come through. I’m not in this to get a seat. I know my vote wouldn’t be that high, but I expected to get 1,000 to 1,200 first preferences,” Mr O’Boyle told The Mayo News last night.[/font]

[font=Roboto, 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]
“For instance, in the Crossboyne box I have nine dead certs there, and only one vote came up on the tally. We have a whistleblower in relation to what I am saying, but I am not willing to say any more about the whistleblower, as there is a legal case pending. We’ve enough evidence. Independents were targeted. You might think I’m mad, but I’m not. It was a total fraud,” he added.[/font]


[font=Roboto, 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]Support
Mr O’Boyle said some other Independent candidates in Mayo are supporting his application. 
When it was put to him that his total of 126 votes in Mayo was not out of sync with his previous election performance in the Roscommon-South Leitrim by-election in 2014, when he polled just 82 votes, Mr O’Boyle disagreed. [/font]

Is this guy smoking something?

He got 126 votes, claims he should have had over 1,000 and claims the election was rigged.  Does he not understand that even with 1126 votes he would have still lost and been out of the race?

It would costs thousands to launch high court action, and even if he won he would still be a loser?

Can he not just accept he lost?

Candidates who do not have much experience or cop-on tend to  believe everybody who says they will vote for them.    In some cases they assume phrases such as "will look after you;  will do the right thing;  will give you t he stroke etc as firm expressions of support.

I heard an esperienced politician say that only one in twenty promises of support should be relied upon

Why not ask for a recount at the time, it would have taken minutes to check is 126 votes.

Fair play to him, id love to see someone take the system on.

I know a good few people who were denied a vite for not being on the system despite voting in the SSM referendum.

If he has the money then go for it

Everybody should check the register each year.   However a mistake in the register will not invalidate the election.

The election in each constituency is organised and run by experienced staff.

When you say you "want to take the system on", what exactly do you mean?

True, but people who voted in the SSM refetendum should still be on it.

I tried to change my address and was told it was an option and my polling cards would be sent to my old address.

They said the register wiuld update in 2017 and I could change then!

Luckily enough it was the same area so i could knock on the door and get my cards!

Gerry O Boyle was discriminated at the polling stations in ballyhaunis today when i went in to vote for myself as a large crowd of supporters gathered to see me cast my vote the presiding officer stoped a supporter taking a photograph of me dropping my vote in to the ballot box the presiding officer said these was new rules (but later i learned in the day the presiding officer is a rank fine geal supporter and i was allowed to take a photograph this corruption got to stop
