With only a couple of days until polling on Thursday 6th May it seems that there are some organisations and individuals intent on rigging the result of the Tower Hamlets governance election.
No surprises there.
You can find out more about the Tower Hamlets governance model referendum here.
Eye witness accounts of people tampering with postal ballots under the guise of canvassing are almost certainly the tip of the iceberg.
What else is going on? Nobody knows until honest residents come forward and report what they have witnessed.

Have you seen something? Have you witnessed what has been happening? You have? Then please tell the rest of us.

- Where did this take place?
- Do you know the people involved or recognise them?
- Did you notice any political symbols or canvassing material? Which party was this for?
Additionally it would be super helpful to us and the authorities if you could include in your email:

As with many things in our borough the reality of electoral fraud is that we have to help ourselves. Nobody else seems bothered.
So please do not remain silent. Electoral fraud is just one example of the corruption that makes all our lives poorer and harder.

As community journalists we do exactly what it says on our tin – we work for the community.
In Tower Hamlets, which covers most of London’s East End, that means we spend a lot of time investigating allegations of political corruption.
It is an unfortunate fact that the poorest local authority in the country is still beset by the highest levels of corruption.
As Love Wapping we were instrumental in exposing the electoral corruption of Mayor Lutfur Rahman.
We hoped that would be an end to our work – no such chance!
