Postal Voting in the UK: Update

Courtesy of Rick Hasen, the BBS reports that the UK "Election watchdog" has come out against all postal voting.

It's important to realize that the Commission's report does not come out against postal voting as an alternative mode of ballot return, but argues that precinct voting must remain the "foundation" of the UK system.

There is also a nice set of recommendations for making sure that ballot integrity is maintained via postal voting. Do counties in the US allowing no-excuse absentee ballots follow the same set of protocols? It's not at all clear.
