A Ballycastle councillor has criticised proposals by the Electoral Office to remove the ballot box from Rathlin Island.
Sinn Fein’s Cara McShane said: “If allowed to go ahead this proposal would result in electors travelling by boat to Ballycastle to cast their vote, or alternatively availing of a postal vote.
"This is undemocratic and blatant discrimination.”
