Labour Councillors Walk Out - 1,500 Ballots alleged to have signature mismatch
The Labour Councillors responding to the Bordesley Petition have now walked out of the court. This has, however, not stopped the court continuing.
The Petitioners have started by identifying the different types of fraudulent votes.
The first category they have identified is those votes where the signature of the voter on the Declaration of Identity (DoI) differs from the signature of the voter on the Application for a postal vote.
That means that either the application or DoI is bogus. It could be that the application is bogus, but the voters signature on the actual DoI is correct. However, it is a good measure of fraud in an election.
1,500 ballot papers are alleged to fall into this category. (that's 4,500 local election votes and 1,500 European votes)
The case continues
