Liz opposes Government’s plans for compulsory ID checks at the ballot box

[23/10/2019 | No comment]

The Government’s recent proposals (announced in the Queen’s Speech) for compulsory ID checks at the ballot box could prevent tens of thousands of legitimate voters from having their say.

According to the Electoral Reform Society ‘millions of people lack photo ID’, compared to just eight cases of electoral fraud reported last year.

This is a completely disproportionate and undemocratic response – and there is no doubt these plans would hit the poorest hardest. That’s why I have signed More United’s petition to prevent the introduction of compulsory ID checks. You can join me by adding your name here.
