MPs call to rethink electronic voting
Political correspondent More than 35 MPs have called for the House of Commons to reconsider introducing electronic voting. Led by Glasgow Cathcart Labour backbencher John Maxton they have signed a Commons motion which says that the development of “increasingly sophisticated personal recognition systems within information technology” have made previous objections to the process redundant. It wants a free vote on the issue but Tories Peter Bottomley and Julian Lewis have objected to the proposals saying they prefer traditional methods of voting and reject electronic substitutes.
