Harpur remembers an elderly man she phoned who on Vandenbeld’s behalf on election day. He told her that because of a call he had advising him that his polling station had been changed, he walked more than three kilometres to the new poll only to be told he was in the wrong place. After walking back home, he told Harpur he was too tired to go back out to vote, even with the ride that was offered. He said it was the first time he would not have voted.
