The Courier & Advertiser (Angus and The Mearns Edition) - - NEWS -

Vot­ers in five ar­eas of Eng­land are to be re­quired to show ID for the first time in an elec­tion next year, it has been an­nounced.

If suc­cess­ful, the trial could be ex­tended across the coun­try as part of a drive to counter vot­ing fraud.

There were 44 cases in 2016 elec­tions of peo­ple try­ing to use an­other in­di­vid­ual’s vote.
