UK: Bradfordistan electorate falls by 20,000 after vote fraud crackdown

Almost 20,000 voters in Bradford have ‘fallen off’ the electoral register after they failed to come forward and prove they were real. The new rules require anyone who wants to register to vote to fill out a form themselves, rather one person in the household completing the form for everyone.

Bradford has long been home to political intrigue, one example is when the radical left-wing politician George Galloway came from nowhere to win the seat with a majority of over 10,000 in the 2012 by-election.
