Paper shredder working hard to process as many ballots at Conservative Party Leadership vote

OTTAWA – The Conservative Party of ’s leadership has started without a hitch dozens of paper shredders destroying as many ballots before they can be counted.

“We have a new system in place,” said former Conservative deputy leader and leadership campaign co-chair Lisa Raitt. “One machine can destroy a ballot in less than three seconds, which is much quicker than the five seconds it took during the 2017 vote.”

Party members were asked to choose who they wanted as their next leader, and then mail them into an Ottawa processing center where they are currently being shredded and  burned.

Insiders are expected to make their choice later this evening.
