Question on the recent voter ID pilots:

Most people would think that voter ID requirements are a perfectly reasonable step toward improving the electoral system in the UK. I asked the Minister what steps were taken in those areas that are part of the Voter ID pilot schemes to ensure that electors were fully aware of the ID they would need in order to vote. I was delighted to hear that early indications point at a successful pilot scheme and I look forward to the publication of the Electoral Commission’s upcoming report.
