ID cards and electoral fraud

Apparently, the Electoral Commission has reversed its position regarding ID cards, and is now saying that, although voters should be required to show identification, they should not have to take a photo-ID, such as the government's coming ID card. Maybe it doesn't want to get tainted by the ID card issue, or be dragooned into defending the hapless government's 'internal passport'.

In any case, it was the changes to the postal voting rules that led to most recent fraud cases, and not people turning up at the polling stations, pretending to be other people.
