About Us

Electoral Reform Services is the UK’s leading independent provider of end-to-end ballot, election and voting services.

Each year thousands of organisations trust us to manage their ballot, election, vote, survey or referendum. Some have fewer than a hundred voters; others have more than a million. Our reputation as the UK’s leading independent scrutineer brings unrivalled integrity to their election results.

Established in 1884, we now have about 200 employees delivering a wide range of integrated ballot and election services, from printing, mailing and processing to digital democracy, auditing and verification

Uniquely for the election services sector, we keep all our services under one roof so we are not reliant on third parties; this means our experienced project managers can meet tight deadlines while controlling cost, quality and confidentiality every step of the way.

Our diverse client base includes professional bodies, membership organisations, mutuals, trade unions, healthcare providers, charities and voluntary organisations, companies, the public sector and political parties, broadcasters and housing associations.

As an ERS Group company, we work seamlessly with colleagues in MES, Xpress, modern.gov and Shaw’s Election Supplies to provide a comprehensive range of services including membership engagement, paperless governance, election management software and election stationery.

Our mission is to be the most trusted provider of services which enable people and organisations to engage, register, vote and govern democratically.

As a Group, we have a shared vision: secure, trusted democracy for all.
