Awards, Media & Broadcasters

Media Elections

ERS is the most experienced independent organisation in the UK to offer adjudication and verification services on behalf of broadcasters, programme makers and award shows.

We have decades of experience in managing votes, counts and televised awards ceremonies. We have provided democratic services to clients in over 90 countries and adjudicated over 200 live broadcasts including the Brit Awards, Big Brother, Strictly Come Dancing and the BAFTAs, to name a few.

We offer end-to-end testing, series verification or one-off vote adjudication. Every programme supported by ERS has been free from voting scandal. However, to ensure complete confidence in our processes, every member of our media team has the BT RIDE accreditation.

ERS’ reputation provides unrivalled trust and assurance, not only in the industry but by the public.
