TK have just clicked that link above and it appears to be working.

Here's that interesting link again:

But how many :idea: Tories registered to vote in more than one constituency :idea: and/or electoral 'region' have been busy exercising more than their fair 'One Person-One Vote' entitlement per election/referendum, Marhak.

Perhaps the Electoral Commission and ALL those :idea: Regional Counting Officers :idea:
can tell us :idea: RIGHT AWAY when asked :idea:
After all, they should have their fingers on the pulse of precise figures
of both legitimate and illegitimate voters and votes
before making any announcement of :idea: "BOGUS REFERENDUM" :idea: "RESULT".

Do they? Will they? CAN they?

Alex Salmond is now talking about initiating a referendum on further devolution for Scotland.
The daft LibDemCon Coalition seem to have tried their hardest to give referendums a bad name with restricted, ill defined choices and dodgy Electoral Law! Their watchword before setting this deceitful pig-in-a-poke so-called 'referendum' in motion should have been to sort out UK electoral fundaments first so all those corrupt sly and slippery mainly Tory multiple voters got screened out (hmmm...politically interested and motivated lack of action perchance?). Democracy First - Referendums (and Elections!!!!!) Second!

That is why it would be unwise to interpret any anti-AV vote outcome as necessarily definitively anti-PR or necessarily definitively pro-FPTP (Scotland, Wales and NI are perfectly happy doing various PR combos).

Second home voters may have to "opt in" to be on Cornwall's register

:idea: Kevin Lavery & Cornwall Council rising to the 'The Kevin Lavery Challenge' - some way to go yet though :idea:

Channel 4 TV report:
"Cornwall Council is taking steps to stop second home owners from voting - the first c
*unty in Britain to do so.

North Cornwall Liberal Democrat MP Dan Rogerson said there were so many second homes in the c
*unty that previous elections may have been swung by the votes of people who did not spend most of their time in the area.

There are more than 13,000 second homes in Cornwall, and owners are eligible for a 10 per cent council tax discount. From now on, people who want their names added to the electoral register will be checked against the database of those receiving this discount.

If they are unable to satisfy the council that their home in Cornwall is their "primary residence", they will not be added to the register. This means they will not be able to vote in elections.

A council spokeswoman conceded, however, that second home owners who did not apply for a council tax discount would not be caught out by the new rules.

Cornwall Council is run by a coaltion of Conservatives and Independents. Alex Folkes, deputy leader of the Liberal Democrat group on the council, said in his blog: "This is an issue about which I, and North Cornwall MP Dan Rogerson, have been campaigning for a number of years. By making it harder for second home owners to register to vote, we will be upholding the law that limits voting rights to people who actually live in an area."

Additional voters could have swung elections. Dan Rogerson MP

Mr Rogerson said: "Around one in twenty households across Cornwall is a second home and owners receive a council tax discount. With that number of properties, the potential additional voters could have been enough to swing almost any election. We know that a large number of second home users did register to vote and so it is possible that they have already swung an election.

"We are not trying to push second home owners into the sea. What we are saying is you have to recognise that your connection to the community is not the same as those who are here full time. Of course there is a contribution to the local economy, but I would prefer that they are using local hotels or campsites."

Prevented from voting twice

Richard Williams, Cornwall Council's head of electoral services, said second home owners would be prevented from wrongly voting twice. "Councillors in Cornwall feel strongly that electors should only vote when and where they are entitled to and that second home owners already have a chance to vote in the area of their main residence. This will make it much less likely that someone who is not eligible to vote will be able to do so".

Last year, 2,653 second home owners were registered to vote in Cornwall. Letters were sent to these people, and as a result, 947 were removed from the register."

The 'Kevin Lavery Challenge' appears to be transmuting into 'The Boundary Commission Challenge'!

Cornwall Council is the ONLY local authority in all of the UK to be getting to grips (slowly but surely)
with chucking out all those multiple property owning non-resident multiple electoral roll registering illegal voters from the electoral registers.

Due to the lack of attention to sorting out this fundamental flaw in UK democracy across the UK's other countries, electoral regions and electoral rolls, there is no way that the Boundary Commission can have accurate UK-wide single entry per voter constituency population figures upon which to base their proposed constituency boundary changes.

That can only be done when the sCameron Coalition unGovernment at Wasteminster (or its successor) actually gets round to implementing :idea: 'Individual Voter Registration' :idea: - scheduled to be implemented around 2014 (the obstacles to achieving an effective implementation method are considerable and 2014 may prove naïve or insincere).

Until 'Individual Voter Registration' comes to pass ALL proposed boundary changes will be based on bollox lists.

C'est une véritable charrue avant les chevaux la situation!

The Boundary Commission 'for England' (What's that? - Yet more casually presumptive anglo-imperialism intruding on the Cornish Nation?)
will be in Truro on Thursday and Friday this week:

Alverton Manor Hotel, Tregolls Road, Truro, Cornwall, TR1 1ZQ
Date: 10 Nov 2011 to 11 Nov 2011
Time: Day 1: 11:00 – 20:00 Day 2: 09:00 – 17:00

:idea: 'Election loophole to close for 'second-homers' in Westcountry' :idea:

Not quite the case. Current inequitable UK Electoral Law still permits multiple electoral roll entries where 'equal residence' is assumed or evidenced and allows multiple voting in local government elections and constituency choice mobility in national UK elections according to however many 'equal residence' electoral roll registrations may have been acquired by an individual. To assume that means 2 registrations may, in quite a few instances, be a false assumption. There are a significant number of anti-social community-shredding multiple house acquisitors out there who think nothing of hoovering up 2,3,4,5....houses across the UK and expecting the right to choose where to vote in UK national elections and to vote in ALL the related local government elections under the catch-all hackneyed excuse of 'no taxation without representation' - no doubt they have a stop-watch handy to ensure they meet the 'equal residence' criteria! UK Electoral law needs to be changed to entitle individual voters to vote only once and that at their main residence constituency only in ALL types of elections or referendums, whether at local or UK national level.

:idea: Very Good News For The Celtic Nation & Duchy Of Cornwall And The People Of The Cornish Nation(perhaps!) :idea:

:idea: Related C24 Discussion :idea:

It remains for all other electoral authorities across the UK to follow Cornwall's lead and throw out all those illegitimate multiple property owner multiple electoral registrants from their chaotic and shabby unverified lists in order to bring 'one person one vote' democracy to the UK.

It also remains for the Electoral Commission and the UK government to tidy up UK electoral law and ban multiple property owners completely from registering to vote in as many constituencies as they have houses under the still extant 'equal residence' rule. (Who can evidence that? Not even an Olympics timekeeper with the finest of stop watches!)

We all know Kevin Lavery has only scratched the surface of unentitled
non-resident voter registrations in Cornwall.
His Election Returning Officer colleagues elsewhere across the UK, of course, haven't even started starting...
