Plans to ‘let out the isolated’ to vote to involve setting aside “one or two hours” at end of polling day

As the government ponders how best to ensure citizens isolated over polling day due to testing positive for SARS-CoV-2, or being ‘contacts of high risk’, can still exercise their Constitutional right to vote, solutions apparently are veering towards ‘setting aside’ one or two hours at the end of the day (Sunday January 30) exclusively for those who are isolating. It has been predicted that 1.2 million people could be in isolation by January 30. Final decisions to be announced later this week.
