Ballots and Elections
EXPERIENCE AND EXPERTISE
Electoral Reform Services and trade unions share a long history of working together. We first administered ballots for rail and mining unions more than a century ago.
Trade union balloting has represented the foundation of our company’s business for many years.

Crucially, we also have vast experience of the application of its provisions since the passing of trade union acts, specifically the following:
We have dedicated Project Managers in the trade union sector. Together with the management team they have over 100 years’ experience and an indepth understanding of this heavily legislated area.

Electoral Reform Services also has extensive experience of conducting industrial action ballots for trade unions. Our Industrial Action team has been assisting trade unions in this crucial area since the inception of legislation 17 years ago. Over this period we have gained valuable knowledge and practical experience. In the last four years we have, on average, despatched in excess of one million industrial action voting papers annually.
In the event the law is changed to allow alternative methods of voting, Electoral Reform Services is well placed to assist trade unions in utilising effectively the opportunities these changes will bring to their electoral projects. Electoral Reform Services has conducted online balloting for other clients for more than ten years and currently administer hundreds of these projects annually.
Once the law is finally changed to allow the introduction of alternative methods of voting, Electoral Reform Services is well placed to assist trade unions in utilising effectively the opportunities these changes will bring to their electoral projects.
