Commenting on the story: Too late for phone voting solution, electoral commissioner tells MPs

As someone seeking to stay safe during the pandemic I would prefer to have a postal vote rather than mixing at a polling booth.

But when I looked at the valid reasons for applying for a postal vote, I found I don’t fit any of the criteria. Postal voting is the only certain safe way to vote at the upcoming election. – Sheila Jarmaine

The infrastructure is already in place, we have COVID testing stations around the state where people who are in isolation can go and get a test safely – safe for them and the people staffing the stations.

Why don’t they make these drive through polling stations for anyone who is isolating? – Andy Burman

Could this problem be overcome by having one central location set up safely where people with Covid can vote perhaps? – Tanya Roe
