When I asked him why he had taken my vote, he said that it had been done and walked back to his table. I tried to press the button for the BSP again, but it was gone, she said.

The video shows the man in a blue t-shirt sitting at his table inside a polling booth at Ascot. The man walks up to the polling compartment as a woman is about to cast her vote. He appears to be pressing the button on the voting machine before returning to his seat.
