For the last conservative MP elected in Perborough the breakdown was as follows

    Majority: 2,740
    Electorate: 67,499
    Total number of votes cast: 41,204
    Adjusted turnout: 61
    Number of postal votes cast: 9,149
    Number of proxy votes cast: 130
    Number of rejected votes: 78

The electoral Commissioners have not released the breakdown for the by election yet(as far as I am aware) It is interesting just how high the postal vote was and I suspect this time it would be the same or larger.
I find it unbelievable that Labour employed persons known to have been convicted of tampering with previous elections. Hence the concern over
the propriety of the postal vote.( the petition is now 7.5k+ )
