England’s local elections are expected to cause heavy losses for the Conservative Party on Thursday, potentially pushing backbench Tory unrest. Meanwhile, voter ID requirements will affect non-Conservative supporters, with up to two million voters lacking the necessary ID.
The Good Law Project has expressed concern over the new voting rules, which they fear may lead to the disenfranchisement of certain groups, especially young people.
The UK government has changed the law, requiring people in England to show ID when voting. The opposition claims the move is an attempt by the Tories to sway future elections by preventing certain demographics from voting, particularly those unlikely to vote Conservatives.
