An interesting proposal from a reader:
but has anyone run the stats on Postal votes? Particularly where, say, the split of postal votes is wildly different to the overall constituency. For example, it would be interesting to find out how many key marginals had a) a sudden increase in the postal vote and b) where the postal vote was disproportionately labour.
Ed Balls would be a good place to start….
Anyone know if there\’s a way to do this? That is, look at the timing of postal votes?
If not, any wide disparity between postal votes and votes on the day would still be interesting, don\’t you think?
I\’m not going to do it but anyone want a stab at it?
