Voting at Inverell

Saturday 4 June 1898, The Sydney Morning Herald

INVERELL.

Inverell.—The voting passed off without any  
special features. The local printing offices were
besieged by anxious concourses of people. The only
disturbance reported was between drunken men.
One thing which militated against a big poll was the
fact that many new polling booths were not properly
advertised by the Government. The vote was not
so large locally as was the case at the last election
for delegates to the Convention.
