Local Authority Mayoral Elections — Pilot Schemes — 20 Dec 2017 at 23:06
The majority of MPs voted to allow electoral pilot schemes for trialling new ways of running elections to be run during local authority mayoral elections.
The motion supported by the majority of MPs taking part in this vote was:
- That the draft Local Authorities (Mayoral Elections) (England and Wales) (Amendment) Regulations 2017, which were laid before this House on 13 November, be approved.
The motion was supported by the majority of all MPs, and the majority of MPs representing constituencies in England and Wales.
An example of an electoral pilot scheme is a trial of requiring voters "to show ID before they can vote".
