Voters will have to show passports to combat voter fraud in 'vulnerable' areas with large Muslim populations

By Steven Swinford, deputy political editor

Voters in towns and cities with large Muslim communities where there are concerns about election fraud will have to show their passports or driving licences before casting their ballot.

The Government has announced that voters should have to produce identification in order to vote to reduce the risk of "endemic corruption" and protect the democratic process.

The voter ID scheme will be trialed in 18 areas which have been identified by police and the Electoral Commission as being "vulnerable" to voting fraud, including Bradford, Birmingham. The pilots will take place in local elections in may 2018 before they are rolled out nationwide. (...)

Eh? How did that even work without ID? A random guy could walk in and get a ballot?
