An old thread was brought up stating how postal votes are basic fraud because groups were going round paying people for their votes.

I've heard of students voting multiple times by going round and registering in different areas.

Lastly is how are the votes counted and who is supervising them?

What's the going rate for selling votes?

How would I go about this?

You need to know someone else's name and address for your polling station, hope that they haven't voted already, and hope that the polling station staff don't recognise you.
We were talking about people from different areas registering and voting in more than one place.

Ask the QC from this article.

Since 2001, anyone on the electoral roll has been able to apply for a postal ballot.

In January, the Electoral Commission said it was particularly concerned about 16 council areas in England.

In some of those areas, the BBC has heard allegations that political activists are pressuring families into voting for their candidate, or taking ballot papers away to fill them in, which is illegal.

Would be surprised if it would cover his fee.

I presume you are talking about meetings that their employer could do over the internet, call outs that could be prioritised differently with a month's notice and similarly with shift patterns. A law ensuring employers allow time to vote makes much more sense than introducing am obvious way for interception to occur.

I'm not sure why you think a month is at the drop of a hat.
What a load of tosh.
you expect companies to spend time and money rearranging when a system exists. My husband works shifts. An hour away from home. You think the multinational company he works for will shut down for the employees to go home to vote?
At the brexit vote we were on holiday so elected for a postal vote instead. You think I’m going to cancel and lose thousands? No
dont be so silly

More evidence of suspect goings on.

FEARS of mass election fraud were growing last night after worried parents said their student sons and daughters are being illegally registered without their knowledge all over the country.

The Sun yesterday revealed that Labour-controlled Plymouth Council broke the law by registering 850 students without their permission.

Tory chairman James Cleverly last night called on the Electoral Commission to begin a nationwide probe to discover how widespread the illegal practice is.

Only individuals can register themselves to vote under a law change in 2014 to halt voter fraud and intimidation.

What you mean is that one local authority has wrongly carried on with a practice that not only was lawful but was mandatory from 1868 to 2014

Whether or not you vote in a particular constituency is recorded. The same person voting in several different constituencies could be found out without too much trouble (and again, for the benefit of only 1 vote in any given seat).

This puts all those elections under scrutiny!

Unless someone else registered and voted in them. As it stands it doesn't look like the different regions are being checked against each other.
