Tories out of touch on voter ID

Cat Smith MP, Labour’s Shadow Minister for Voter Engagement, commenting on new research by the Electoral Reform Society which shows that voters see mandatory ID in polling stations as one of their lowest concerns, said:

“This research shows just how out of touch the Tories really are; they have all the wrong priorities when it comes to our democracy.

“Clearly their plan to impose voter ID will put people off voting, which is why the Government should abandon their undemocratic proposals as a matter of urgency.”
