The numbers are big. We need to cater for all the voters who are potentially coming out to vote. We're estimating around 80 million ballots.— Simon Boyle, IEC senior manager
There are security features embedded in the paper, which make it almost impossible to replicate it.— Simon Boyle, IEC senior manager
We are going to be printing roughly 4650 different ballots, that's different images. There are approximately 4500 wards, each with their own ballots.— Simon Boyle, IEC senior manager
