Postal votes have long been a source of suspicion, with allegations of fraud seemingly never far away. But while recent allegations by Richard Marrey QC should be taken seriously, it is not in reality a particularly widespread problem, nor something which routinely effects the results of important elections. More serious, argues Toby S. James, is the continuing problem of under-registration and disengagement with the political system, which could be further reinforced by the removal of the postal voting option.
