Government finally agrees to introduce individual electoral registration

The Government has finally caved in to pressure from the Electoral Commission, the Liberal Democrats and the Conservatives to change voting registration to being done on an individual basis.

Registration on a single form for each address has long been a weak point of the entire voting system - it's very open to abuse.

Unfortunately it will also cost more, and the cost is likely to fall on local councils.
