Hitler ballot paper for auction

A ballot paper from the 1933 election that brought Adolf Hitler to power is to be auctioned by Mullock's Auctioneers.

The paper, to be sold on June 25 at an auction of historical documents at Ludlow Racecourse, bears the name of Hitler with those of Rudolf Hess and Hermann Goering.

On the matter of ballot papers, The Green Room (a charity shop that I manage) has a couple of original, unused ballot papers of the first free elections in South Africa in 1994.

These are very colourful and each party has a photo of its leader, including Nelson Mandela.

Price £10 each. These are highly decorative and a piece of history. All profits go to environmental causes.
