In any election in the UK, your vote belongs to you. Whether you vote at a polling station, by post, or via a proxy, it’s your decision.
It’s illegal for anyone to influence you to vote against your will.
What is voter fraud?
Voter fraud can take many different forms. No-one, not even a
partner or family member, is allowed to:
- pressure you into voting a certain way
- offer you something in exchange for your vote
- pretend to be you at the polling station
- complete your postal vote for you
