Memorandum by Broughton Gifford Parish
Council (POS 44)
West Wiltshire District Council made the Parish
Council aware of the opportunity of making our views known at
national level on the above detailed topic of postal voting. However,
the consultation document on this inquiry called for "evidence"
as opposed to opinions/views and as such this Parish Council was
unable to make any comment, as it has no experience on this matter.
This Parish Council has serious concerns about
the risk of fraud and the costs involved in implementing a postal
voting system but without evidence it could not make these comments
known to the Inquiry. The Parish Council would like to know if
the Government can produce "evidence" that these problems
would not occur!
Mrs Dawn Cutherbertson
Clerk to Broughton Gifford Parish Council
