The Electoral Commission has confirmed that the UK does not have widespread election fraud. Frankly, given how easy it can be to break election law and how election campaigns re inevitably partisan, I am surprised more offences are not reported. What is more worrying is that the move to individual registratiion will embed an unfairness in the system, where large parts of the population will be unrepresented. In places like Brent, I can imagine that meaning the majority of voters coming off the register.
