Electoral fraud: Voters will have to show ID in pilot scheme per BBC News

This BBC report on the pilot scheme to require voters to prove their identity before voting is an opportunity for the BBC to quote Labour Party allegations.

'Labour's shadow minister for voter engagement and youth affairs, Cat Smith MP, said the party supported the plan.

However, she said more needed to be done to ensure eligible voters were registered after a change to the rules by the Conservatives in February meant people had to register as individuals, rather than as a household - a move that saw thousands of people drop off the register.'

Is it not possible that some people previously on the electoral roll should not have been? Or is that sort of claim 'racist'?
