Completed petition Ensure owners of second homes & holiday lets in Wales register to vote only at their primary address, in devolved and local elections
The Electoral Commission has confirmed there are no systematic checks on whether someone has voted twice. We do not believe that the mere fact that electoral fraud is illegal in itself provides sufficient safeguarding if no systematic checks are made. This is akin to having speeding laws in place but no functioning speed cameras. The serious potential for fraud & the harmful impact of that on our country is immense and should be urgently addressed prior to the 2021 elections.
