Where the Electoral Commission is made aware of allegations of electoral fraud it advises the complainant to contact their local police force or Crimestoppers. It does not record where such advice has been provided.
Statistics reported to the Electoral Commission by police forces across the UK show that in 2017 there were 148 cases in relation to alleged electoral fraud at the UK Parliamentary General Election. There were a further 168 cases relating to other election types, and 20 cases recorded as non-election specific.
It is not possible to know which of these cases may have resulted from advice given to a complainant by the Commission.
