Election staff and police identifying 'hotspots for trouble' ahead of June 8

THE authorities have outlined how they plan to keep this year’s General Election free and fair, as it is revealed Bradford has England’s highest rate of reports of electoral fraud and malpractice.
Elections staff and police are identifying potential hotspots for trouble ahead of the June 8 poll, and are ready to put extra staff in to monitor polling stations.



The district’s Returning Officer, Kersten England, said it was her job to ensure electors could exercise their right, “without being hassled, to make the decision they want to make in the polling booth”.
She said: “I don’t deny that elections are at times challenging in Bradford because emotions run high, democracy matters and people turn out, and sometimes that leads to issues.
“For that reason we plan with the police, we assess every ward and every polling station and we deploy resources against that risk assessment.
“We know there are certain parts of the district in which issues can arise and we have extra police on them and we have extra polling staff on them.”
