‘Significant concerns’ over plans to introduce voter ID to UK elections

The UK’s independent election watchdog has warned the government of its “significant concerns” about the delivery of new plans to overhaul the electoral system.

In a letter sent to Ministers over the summer – but revealed today by Open Democracy – the Electoral Commission set out a series of worries about the timetable of introducing photo ID and other changes.

And even urged Ministers to delay the rollout to give the  more time to prepare.
