The Cabinet Office has issued this guidance to electoral administrators about forthcoming elections. Parish councils will be informed by their Electoral Administrators in principal councils, of the exact local situation. The latest guidance about forthcoming elections that may have been due to take place before legislation postponing them will come into force is as follows:-
The Government is to announce that voters will have to provide photographic identification such as driving licences or passports before casting their ballot. A new Electoral Integrity Bill will also limit the number of relatives for whom anyone can act as a proxy, and outlaw the “harvesting” of postal ballots by political parties and activists.
