Various MPs have questioned whether the three-week early-voting period is too long, with both major parties hinting it could be reviewed after the election.

“It has a massive effect. This is a new phenomenon that we’ve all got to take to account.

“If you’re voting weeks before the election date, as you know things change week-to-week. There are different issues.”
