Council aims to cut fraud and increase turnout using new technology...
The government ditched the e-voting trials originally planned for this week's local council elections because of fears over security. But that hasn't stopped one borough trialling new technologies to encourage higher voter turnout, prevent fraud and generally make the process more convenient and easier to use for citizens.
Here you can see one of the Shop 'n' Vote polling stations set up by Rushmoor Borough Council in Hampshire, in shopping centres in and around the army garrison in Aldershot.
The polling stations were aimed at increasing voter turnout by giving citizens the option of voting while they did their shopping in the days leading up to the official ballot day on 4 May.
