An Oxford student was told at the polling booth in the GE in 2010 that because of a “quirk for students” he could vote twice. He had voted in the General Election by postal vote, so came in to vote in the council elections. But he was told that he could vote again.
The student, knowing this was illegal, didn’t vote again and reported the incident to the authorities. This happened in 2010. Students should not be registered in two places. There is too much temptation to vote twice.
There needs to be a major investigation of all student areas, to check for wrong doing. We all know what happened in Tower Hamlets. What is going on…….? Students are being told they can vote twice in council elections. See below.
Because it isn’t like a man of authenticity would fiddle the system. Is it ?
UPDATE. The notice above from a uni. notice board has been withdrawn by the university students, which i find odd. It stated that it was legal to vote in two councils, but an offence to vote twice in a GE. This could be a way of notifying students that there was a loophole in the system though. I find it beyond belief that some students would not take advantage of this.
