Most law-abiding citizens in the Wycombe constituency would be shocked if they knew the extent of corrupt election practices and voter fraud which happen each time there is an election.Agreed. Although I cannot resist a slightly flippant comment in respect of this...
I know of people who register to vote at different addresses in the town and then vote in the same election more than once in person and by postal vote.
I have heard accounts of candidates visiting electors’ homes and demanding postal votes are completed in front of them and then taken away.
I have testimony of one young woman’s unmarked postal vote being taken off her under duress by a relative and handed to a candidate.
There are instances of people impersonating others and voting at polling stations in their place.
It seems the price of a vote in some parts of Wycombe is £10, a free taxi ride or a free pizza. This simply cannot go on.
I appreciate not everyone has a passport or driving licence and I agree with the Government’s proposal these electors should be able to obtain a free document proving their identity.Oh? Like... Some sort of ID Card, perhaps...?
