Supporting Excellence in Delivering Democratic Rights

Like our own electoral management system and services, democracy itself needs constantly to evolve. We respond to the ever-changing threats of cyber-attack and fraud, and embrace the enhanced opportunities that technology provides for increasing voter registration and participation. 

Whilst we look forward to helping deliver further electoral modernisation, we believe there is a need for a broader conversation about how the form and function of UK democracy can improve.  For example, how do we increase voter confidence and engagement, what do we want the voter experience to be, how do we reduce the bureaucratic burden on electoral administrators, and how do we help the democratic process to evolve and expand in the digital age with ever more resilience and inclusivity? These are all questions any review of our democracy will need to address, and we look forward to being both part of the discussion and a provider of solutions.

The Only CRM that understand IER

Democracy Counts made the decision to re-write their EMS early on in the IER discussion stages. We realised that the amount of communincations your team would have to perform needed a Customer Relationship Management system that was compliant with all Electoral Legislation. This has proved to be the right move as other vendors are attempting to re-write their systems now, 4 years too late!

Our Elector Centre Suite is a Microsoft Office for Democracy

Elector Centre suite of products, the software underpinning our electoral services, has been developed using market leading technology. They are modular, scalable and fully integrated, providing the most extensive range of democratic software solutions available in the world.

Local Authority Chief Executives and Returning Officers are excited about how our software can improve citizen engagement and participation using the electoral roll: helping with recruitment and retention of citizens' journeys online.

What People are Saying

Our working lives have been transformed thanks to using a system that is fast, accurate and does a lot of the tedious work for us. During the elections running data files was quick and efficient – no late nights trying to produce print files! Our electors have benefited from a quicker, more efficient service both during the elections and during the Annual Canvass. Our Annual Canvass did not feel like the normal sinking under mounds of forms – where were all the paper forms? – they were on Canvass tablets which proved more receptive by electors and a more secure way of Canvassing. We are looking forward to continuing to work on a reliable and modern system that will evolve with us to meet all our future requirements.

London Borough of Camden

We have found the Elector8 system to be excellent. We had to immediately deliver our County Elections and Snap Parliamentary Election within 3 months of moving to the system. The migration was fast and efficient and we received all the training and support we needed, whenever and however we needed it. We have been welcomed into an active useful user group which listens to ideas and uses these to quickly shape the product. It’s refreshing to see how easily modern software can allow us to work in more efficient ways. We look forward to continually improving the way we work.
