A man lost the opportunity to vote after his dog ate his polling card.

Dog jeopardised vote

Enschede man Erik van Bommel was left stunned after his dog, Nio, tore his voting pass into a thousand pieces on Tuesday night (14.03.17).

And after the male contacted the municipality to resolve the matter, he was told no new voting ballots would be issued out to anyone regardless of their situation.

As a result Enschede was left feeling angry at his pet pooch because he never moves anything from his dining table.

Speaking to Tubantia Online, he said: ''He never takes anything off the table. And now this. And I was so eager to vote. But the municipality said that I should've applied for a new voting pass yesterday before noon. Isn't that weird? Shouldn't it be faster?''

Enschede has been advised to stick the pieces of the ballot back together on Twitter, although he has already thrown the tiny fragments away.
