star this property answer text <p>Voting more than once at a General Election is a crime which carries an unlimited financial penalty. Any evidence of an individual who is suspected to have voted twice at the General Election should be reported to the Police for investigation. In addition, the presiding officer at a polling station may ask any elector if they have already voted, and may withhold a ballot paper from an elector if they do not answer the question satisfactorily. The electoral register is marked to record the issuing of ballot papers to individuals at polling stations; there are electronic records of the issuing of postal votes representing an equivalent to the marked register for some electors. These records can already assist with an investigation should any voting irregularities be suspected.</p><p>There are a number of significant technical and practical barriers, as well as security and privacy concerns, relating to implementing a national electoral registration database. The Government has no plans to create such a database.</p>

Sir Eric Pickles’ review of electoral fraud, published in 2016, considered postal voting and identified a number of areas in which the existing rules around postal voting could be tightened. The Government responded to the review, addressing each of its recommendations in turn, and setting out a number of measures for tackling the risk of fraud.</p><p>The Government is continuing to consider how to improve the integrity of postal voting and electoral processes in general, and will keep these matters under review.</p> more like this
