The Government is continuing to work with the Law Commission, as well as other stakeholders such as the Electoral Commission, to consider ways to streamline and clarify our electoral system in order to make elections easier to administer and therefore more resilient to errors or fraud.

We will consider their proposals in full once we receive the Law Commission’s final report.
