Identifying The Threat

I have been involved in electoral politics for nearly 30 years. Across all political parties and none, and touching on every type of election to have been held in Britain during that period, I have never heard anyone suggest a case of voter impersonation.

Requiring photographic identification to vote is not about electoral fraud. It is only partially about even voter suppression. This is about identity cards, which have been the Home Office's solution in search of a problem for as long as I can remember.
