Australia’s voting system is ‘vulnerable to fraud’ without voter ID requirements

Australia’s “voting system is more vulnerable to fraud” than it needs to be ahead of the next federal election after the Morrison government’s proposed voter ID laws were dropped, according to 2GB Radio broadcaster Michael McLaren. 

“We have a very strange psyche I think in this country where when it comes to elections, we believe everybody to be honest as the day is long,” he said. 

“But try to take out a bank loan, rent a video, pick up a parcel from the post office or even enter your local club and you’ll be required to produce ID. 

“Now I’m not saying that our elections are hotbeds of corruption or voter fraud is in sort of plague proportions but without greater levels of veracity the system is surely vulnerable.”
