unstar this property answer text <p>The British public deserves to have confidence in our democracy and the Government is committed to ensuring that our electoral system is fit for the future.</p><p>Next year, Peterborough and Pendle will be piloting measures to improve the integrity of the postal and proxy vote process. This builds on similar pilots in 2018.</p><p>In addition, the Government is looking to introduce measures which will prohibit party campaigners from handling postal votes, and apply a limit to the number of postal ballots that any one individual can hand in at a polling station. The provisions will be backed up by a new offence, and will make a significant contribution to enhancing the security of postal voting. There is currently a Government supported Private Members’ Bill in the House of Commons looking to introduce this policy.</p><p>The Government is considering the way forward on the other recommendations made by Sir Eric Pickles, a number of which relate to absent voting, and will continue to consider how to improve the integrity of electoral processes more generally.</p><p>The Government is committed to strengthening our electoral processes and enhancing public confidence in the rigour of those democratic processes.</p>
