Somebody just used my email address to register to vote in the UK.
Folks, don't do that. Seriously. Please don't use a throwaway email to register to vote.
@ellotheth Ah, that's odd. Especially since you need a real address and national insurance number to receive a polling card.
Maybe you should contact the Electoral Commission and ask them about this - just in case it's a sign of voter fraud.
@lychee Thanks! I contacted the local election board (that was the contact email in the registration notice), but I'll reach out to the national commission too.
