Guardian – Rise in postal votes fuels fear of fraud: Record numbers of electors are applying for postal votes for the general election, raising fears that it will be open to widespread fraud.

The increase comes as demand grows for urgent changes in the postal-voting system, last week labelled by a judge as “an open invitation to fraud”. There is an ongoing court case, and police are investigating fraud in six areas of the country.
