Postal votes have shot up in popularity. Seriously.
Over the last couple of decades, we’ve gone from just a handful of percentage points of people using postal votes, to something like 20 per cent of all voters making their choice at home.
Why aren’t people going to the ballot box, when they quite obviously have time to pop into a local polling booth one day a year? Could there be something nefarious going on here?
A new probe has been announced. Is it time to ban postal voting?
