Aha, following up my concerns over postal ballot security, the BBC reports that fraud has ensued - "Greater Manchester Police are probing malpractice claims while the Lancashire force will question 60 people about 170 proxy vote applications. The Times newspaper says numerous voters were intimidated into handing blank ballot papers over. "

The TImes article wants a log-in, gah.

So, are they going to sort this out through increased policing of the postal ballot system, or some other, more "scientific" way? Is it comparable to the end-to-end nature of the net, and all the security around that to ensure we are who we say we are?
