775 heart beats to go

Radio NZ reports that election officials are checking 775 special votes to ensure they qualify for the counting stage, due to start on Wednesday afternoon.

Some 963 special vote ballots were sent out, but 188 have been disqualified because they were not returned on time.

It’s getting close to the end.  Is your heart fluttering?
