Elections are a vital part of our democracy and the public rightly expects them to be well administered. When problems occur like in some parts of the country during the 2017 General Election, this can lead to voters being disenfranchised through no fault of their own. Such cases are by no means commonplace, but highlight the importance of effective administration of elections.
With an election likely to take place in the coming months, join our 2019 Electoral Administration Briefing on 7th November to examine the lessons from recent elections, learn from best practice and prepare for the future.
Key issues to be addressed:
- Recent developments in election law
- Observable trends from recent elections and how electoral administrators should respond
- The impact of Voter ID Trials and measures to prevent intimidation and fraud
- Preparing for future elections
- Building capacity and resilience within elections teams
- Working effectively with suppliers and agencies
- Maintaining an accurate electoral register
- Running an efficient polling day and election count
The morning session will identify the lessons that can be learned by electoral administrators from recent elections. It will also prepare the ground for future elections by assessing how elections teams can prepare to meet the challenges they are facing.
The afternoon session will examine best practice in electoral administration and tackling electoral fraud.
Who should attend?
Anyone with an interest in electoral administration and tackling electoral fraud, including Heads of Electoral Services, Electoral Services Managers, Heads of Governance and Democratic Services, Returning Officers and Heads of Electoral Administration.
