THE government has signalled that it will review election rules after an MP claimed students are openly boasting about voting twice in the election.
Ms Leadsom was responding to a concern raised by Wellingborough Tory MP Peter Bone who said that boasts by Leftwing students of voting where they went to university and in their home constituencies had been posted online.
He said: “It has been brought to my attention that people can be registered to vote in a general election in two places.I am registered in London and in my constituency.

The issue was also raised by Shipley Tory MP Philip Davies, who was targeted by a Leftwing hate campaign during the election.
He raised concerns that the postal vote system was not only allowing double voting but also meant that in some communities votes were being stolen off women as the head of the household made multiple votes.

“These are serious issues that many people are concerned about, so may we have a debate on the abuse of postal voting?”
Responding to Mr Bone, Mrs Leadsom said: “We must get to the bottom of people deliberately voting twice, which I understand is illegal.
