This Government is committed to creating a secure and clear democracy that works for all. We published our response to the Rt. Hon. Sir Eric Pickles’ report on electoral fraud in December 2016 setting out the Government’s approach to tackling the recommendations Sir Eric made.

The Electoral Commission publishes annual analysis of electoral fraud on their website. (http://www.electoralcommission.org.uk/find-information-by-subject/electoral-fraud/data-and-analysis?)

Further information on electoral fraud is available in the reports.
