In this publication, the government welcomes Sir Eric Pickles’ report Securing the ballot: review into electoral fraud and responds to his recommendations.
Electoral fraud is unacceptable on any level. The government aims to:
- prevent the intimidation and undue influence of voters
- end the dubious practice of postal vote harvesting
- pilot the use of identification in polling stations
This response works through Sir Eric’s recommendations to set out the government’s views and proposed actions.
