Judicial review sought for general election postal votes

Lib Dem councillor John Hemming, PPC for Birmingham Yardley is seeking a judicial review into postal voting. More details are available on his own blog. The Scotsman say it could well postpone the entire election, although none of the measures listed look like they could well; all it is asking for changes in procedure to make any fraud easier to track.

John Hemming has also thoughtfully provided a copy of the Mawrey judgement on the Birmingham Bordesley Green and Aston cases - it's available in the SaveDemocracy Yahoo! group. Alternatively I will email it (it's half a meg) to anyone who wants it. I will endeavour to post any particularly pertinent extracts on this blog later this week.
