Romford MP Andrew Rosindell has broken Electoral Commission guidelines by providing the local Conservative headquarters as the return address for postal vote applications.

In order to “minimise the risk of suspicions that completed applications could be altered or destroyed” the Electoral Registration Officer’s (ERO) address should be the preferred address for the return of absent vote application forms, according to the guidelines.

But the Conservative MP has written to residents across Havering urging for them to vote Tory and apply for postal votes including just Margaret Thatcher House, Western Road, Romford, as the return address for applications in the letters.

Mr Rosindell stressed: “All absent vote forms that are sent to our H.Q. or handed to our campaign team are handed the next day to the ERO at the town hall.

“All political parties do this.”

But other leaders - Residents’ Association leader Cllr Clarence Barrett, Council leader Cllr Steven Kelly and Labour leader Cllr Keith Darvill - denied this and criticised the MPs practice.

Not the first time they have been accused of vote rigging Clr Curtin complained about proxy votes and absent association members voting on Candidates maybe the police should be investigating the Romford conservative association for fraud

In their desperation to win it appears that some people might do anything.

That's a bit like cheating, they should discount all the Tory postal votes that come via Thatcher house.

Hi Indy, talk about desperate they even sent one of these postal vote letters to my partner Richard.

I immediately checked the guide lines and it is clearly evident that the MP has breeched these, please see http://www.electoralcommission.org.uk/__data/assets/pdf_file/0006/154176/Code-of-conduct-campaigners-2013.pdf.

Percy.
I suspect they will claim they are only guidelines not law.Is this the same party that claims foreign votes are suspect like in Iraq.

Well Lorraine I am no legal eagle but it looks like someone has not been following the postal voting guidelines,
and I for one hope the other parties take the matter up with the appropriate authorities.If other people or parties are bending the rules, to gain an unfair advantage this can,t be right, I am not 100% sure of any legal implications but the matter in hand requires further investigation in my opinion.

Have any of the Parties contacted the electoral Commission and if as you say spike he has done it before he should most definitely be investigated, as i said in previous post they rigged the selection elections and Tory central office ignored it so how many other associations are rigging the votes

It surprises me that so  many people can believe that Rosindell is dodgy, yet nothing ever comes of it.  Even mention his name and people immediately tell you a tale of when he was inappropriate, drunk, acting against guidelines, shafting member of his own party.  Such a shame that he seems untouchable.  I really do hope he gets his comeuppance!
