Delivering  world class software for assured, transparent elections

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.

What People are Saying

Happy with delivery of service from Amelia. She understood my inquiry as it was a recall from previous weeks log ticket. She sent it up to the developers and mentioned it in team meeting which is super efficient and really helpful. 

Many Thanks Team DC. Roll on May 6th ;-) 

Broadland District Council

Project Refine has improved the way that DC engages with its clients. It allows users to influence the development of Elector8 in a positive way. Paul and Wayne run the sessions in a relaxed informal way that allows users to contribute. I think that this is a model that all suppliers should seek to emulate.
