Another excellent blog on individual electoral registration

Last month I wrote in praise of Alastair Campbell (at least partially) and his concern over the moves to make electoral registration optional.

Another interesting foray into this debate comes from the ever-intelligent Mark Pack who has penned a piece on the various pros and cons of individual electoral registration and this one on making the process voluntary.

All this might seem pretty anoraky (and it is), but my required party political dig is about Labour's hypocrisy on (at least part of) the issue. They now claim that individual registration is wrong, despite the fact that it was they who legislated for it in the first place.
