Alleged Fraud – Explained

26th April 2016






  1. Voting results within the council wards were compared with the voting results being claimed by MPs at the declaration after the count, and archived as shown upon

  2. These were examined using as a yardstick the 6 types or categories of votes (see paragraph 15), beginning with the Electorate

  3. The Electorate is the number of persons who are legally entitled to vote because their names had been entered upon the Electoral Register before the General Election

  4. The Electoral Register is created, kept and administered by each local council and not the Electoral Commission

  5. The sole prime source of official voting records for both wards AND MPs’ vote totals is the Council or Local Authority, which runs and administers the polling stations within its jurisdiction

  6. The original official voting records are therefore to be found only on the council websites

  7. Any voting results which are subse quently published elsewhere, in the papers, on Sky, on the BBC, by the Electoral Commission, and particularly on, are all supplied from the council voting results and are copied from the council’s original results shown on the council websites

  8. The number of the Electorate, being the fixed number of people who are legally entitled to vote for the MP at an Election, is exactly identical to the number of the Electorate, or the fixed number of people who are legally entitled to vote for the ward councillors

  9. Thus it is exactly the same number of people who are voting for the ward councillors as are voting for the MPs, because they are the same people

  10. The wards which go to make up an MP’s constituency are not necessarily wards within one council

  11. Thus there might be added wards within an MP’s constituency from one, or two, or even three, different councils

  12. In a comparison between the voting for MEPs & Police Commissioners in 2014 and the General Election on 7 May 2015, the wards making up a particular constituency did not themselves change

  13. This was because there had not been enough time between the 2014 and 2015 elections to change the boundaries of the wards which together go to make up each MP’s constituency

  14. Therefore, the constituency boundaries at the 2015 General Election remained the same as the 2010 General Election, and the same as the 2014 MEP and Police Commissioner elections

  15. In addition to the total number for the Electorate (CAT 1), there are a further 5 categories or types of votes within the voting process: –

    Issued Postal Votes (CAT 2)

    Issued Walk-In Votes (CAT 3)

    Cast Votes (CAT 4)

    Rejected Votes (CAT 5)

    Turnout Percentage (CAT 6)


  16. A single voter is issued with a set of ballot papers. Because it is the same people who are voting for the MPs as those voting for the ward councillors, the number of the Electorate (or the fixed number of people who are legally entitled to vote for the MP) is identical to the number of persons who are legally entitled to vote for the ward councillors.  Because they are the same people or the same person(s)

  17.  A single voter is issued with a set of ballot papers

  18. This set of ballot papers allows the elector to vote both for the MP and a ward councillor (the choice being for 1, or 2, or 3 or sometimes even 4 separate ward councillors depending how many ward seats are up for re-election)

  19. On rare occasions, ward councillor seats are uncontested

  20. When & where ward councillor seats are uncontested, whilst a rarity, does appear to cause a ripple of irregularity within the ward elections

  21. The way in which uncontested ward councillor seats are dealt with on the council websites appears to be an anomaly under Electoral Law

  22. This has been regarded as a side issue by the #Quixote Investigation, since it occurs so infrequently within the #Quix Xxx Tests and #Quix Xxx Excel

  23. To sum up, within all of the voting process set out above: –

  24. the numbers for each of the categories of votes, beginning with the Electorate, must be the same for both the council ward results and for the constituency MP’s claimed results, those on public display and archived on the website

  25. What this means is that there must be reconciliation, i.e. a “balancing” of the total numbers of votes under the Representation of the People Act 1983

  26. Put into an exact, factual, mathematical form, what certain sections of the Representation of the People Act 1983 require (see paragraph 15 above) are that: –

  27. Cat 2 + Cat 3 must equal Cat 4 + Cat 5

  28. If Cat 2 (Issued Postal Votes) + Cat 3 (Issued Walk-In Votes) does not equal Cat 4 (Cast Votes) + Cat 5 (Rejected Votes), the Election is unlawful and allegedly potentially fraudulent

  29. In which case, such irregularities are alleged offences under the Fraud Act 2006 Section 3 (Failure to Disclose Information), Section 2 (Making a False Representation via Added False (Ghost) Votes)
