The Electoral Commission informs me that it defines electoral fraud as any of the offences specified by the Representation of the People Acts. These include offences related to voting or registration, such as personation, bribery, multiple voting, violating the secrecy of the ballot, undue influence and false statements on registration. They also include several other types of offence including those relating to imprints on publications, campaign behaviour and spending limits for candidates’ expenses.
