Burned Brexit Party Ballots, Voter Fraud Under Investigation.

Police are investigating allegedly burned ballots while voter fraud questions are being raised over the result of the Peterborough by-election (special election) in the United Kingdom last week.

A local Labour Party campaigner previously convicted of electoral fraud was present throughout the campaign and, critically, at the official election count.

The result – declared late Thursday night – saw Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party denied its first seat in parliament by just 683 votes.

Long time Labour Party activist Tariq Mahmood – convicted in 2008 for a vote fabrication scheme – was “front and centre” of the party’s efforts to mobilize the growing Muslim vote in the city, according to local officials.
