Completed postal votes being shared online

Statement

“This incident has been reported to us, and has also been reported to the police.

"The Electoral Commission takes the secrecy and security of the ballot very seriously and we remind campaigners that we expect them to follow the Code of Conduct.

"In particular, the Code says that parties, candidates and campaigners should not handle or take completed ballot papers from voters. Instead, voters should be encouraged to post their postal ballot pack themselves.”
