That the draft Voter Identification Regulations 2022, which were laid before this House on 3 November, be approved.

“no knowledge of, or little interest in, the consequences of fraud to our economy or society.”-[Official Report, House of Lords, 24 January 2022; Vol. 818, c. 20.]
“the evidence of our pilots shows that there is no impact on any particular demographic group from this policy.”-[Official Report, 11 June 2020; Vol. 677, c. 394.]-
“Polling station staff were not asked to collect demographic data about the people who did not come back, owing to the practical challenges involved in carrying out that data collection exercise”.
“It is a fundamental part of the democratic process that elections can run smoothly and effectively where every citizen is able to exercise their right to vote.”
“this will disproportionately disenfranchise blind and partially sighted people, particularly older blind and partially sighted people.”
“voter ID could simply result in yet another barrier to people with a learning disability participating in elections.”
“Given the barriers that already face disabled people while voting, Sense is concerned that this could make it harder for some disabled people to vote.”
“fully secure, accessible, and workable”
“concerns are regularly expressed with regards to the lack of safeguards against possible fraud resultant from a weak system of voter registration and postal voting, compounded by the absence of a requirement to produce identification at any stage of the process.”
