Post voting fraud will get worse, says police chief
By Andrew Sparrow, Political Correspondent Daily Telegraph
Postal voting fraud will get worse as offenders realise how easy it is to get away with it, a senior police officer has warned.
Chief Supt Dave Murray, of Thames Valley Police, said fraudsters would develop "a feeling of untouchability" because the law made it so hard for them to be successfully prosecuted.

A NATIONWIDE publicity campaign warning people of the risks of postal voting fraud is to be launched early next week, the Government announced last night.
Advertisements in national and regional newspapers will tell the 6.5 million people due to vote by post how to do so “safely and securely”. They are expected to advise the public not to hand their completed postal ballot papers to party activists or candidates, in order to cut potential fraud.
