It has now been confirmed that the online voting system does allow a spoilt ballot ‘paper’.
But with all this technology is it still possible to get it wrong?

“But you will get a warning on screen asking if this is really what you want to do though,” he added.
It’s nice to know that the option of last resort is still available.
