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

The canvass reform training delivered by Democracy Counts was superb - their training always is!


It was thorough, informative but crucially it was delivered in manageable chunks. The trainer was knowledgeable and engaging.


All of this delivered seamlessly, under the new pressures of working from home during lockdown.

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.
