There is no secrecy in the ballot in Prince Edward .Island. They objected to my own vote, thinking, perhaps,
I would vote for my opponent, and as my ballot was numbered there was no difficulty in telling how I voted on the recount. The returning officer, through design or otherwise, put a number on the back of the ballot corresponding with my name in the polling book. There is no secrecy in the ballot so far as Prince Edward Island is concerned. I trust that the government will see that the electors in Prince Edward Is-. land shall be placed on the same footing as electors in other parts of Canada in regard to the secrecy of the ballot.
