Did students vote twice for Corbyn? Watchdog demands urgent action on suspected voter fraud

Post by Thorin on Tue Jul 18, 2017 7:22 am

Corbyn's election result have prompted the Electoral Commission to demand urgent action to halt a "troubling" rise in alleged voter fraud. Ministers should investigate developing a new computer system to block duplicate voting and force electors to choose where they will cast their ballot, the commission said last night.

The watchdog revealed it received over 1,000 complaints and almost 40 letters from MPs about voters casting more then one ballot in June and it is working with police on how to investigate the claims. It highlighted evidence showing students are most likely to be registered in more than one place and that thousands more than expected registered to vote in the 2017 ballot which saw Labour boosted across the country.

Suspect

Suggestions that those wicked Trotskyite students are going by that old adage :

"Vote early,
Vote often  !"

They were boasting about doing this, it might turn out that Corbyn had a half million votes that he shouldn't have had. It's possible some voted more than twice, a bit far fetched but who knows?

I have heard that many students have been bragging about how they voted twice... once where they live for university and again from being registered at parents house area...


Then add on all the dodgy postal vote fraud that goes on etc ...


Lefty lie and cheat... didnt you know that...?

Tory MPs fear students collected their friends' polling cards and cast multiple ballots in a bid to get Jeremy Corbyn elected, the Telegraph can reveal.

In one of the most shocking cases an MP reported two students to the authorities after it emerged that neither of them were registered for postal or proxy votes but both cast a ballot in the election despite being out of the country.

The MP revealed that despite his complaints after the election no action has been taken as he warned the authorities are not taking the problem seriously enough.

Other MPs reported groups of students bragging about voting as many as six times each by taking the polling cards of friends who did not intend to vote and pretending to be them.
