2014 Scottish independence referendum

Electoral fraud investigation

19 Sep, 2014

Glasgow City Council says police have been called to investigate 10 cases of suspected election fraud. The investigation is thought to be related to possible cases of personation, or voting under somebody else’s name. Officials will have to search through the ballots to find the 10 suspect papers, which will be removed and kept separately from the more than 486,000 papers being counted in Glasgow. Police spokesman:

Police Scotland takes the safety and security of the independence referendum extremely seriously and is working with partner agencies including local authorities to ensure the integrity of the ballot.
