Electoral Commission Input to Law Commissions’ Review of Electoral Law

The Electoral Commission have recently submitted a paper (published on September 10th) on legislative issues that arose in relation to the May 2015 elections to the Law Commissions’ Review of Electoral Law. The first issue listed is the tallying of votes at postal vote opening sessions and at the count. The paper restates the submission that the Commission state was made in March 2015 (but only published on April 7th) by the Electoral Commission to the Law Commissions’ review of electoral law arguing that tallying of postal votes is illegal and should be illegal, but its illegality should be more explicit in legislation.
