Elections Ahead: Current and Future Challenges in Electoral Management
- Published: 19 October 2016
Last month, the Association of Electoral Administrators (AEA) claimed that unprecedented challenges had pushed the system ‘closer to collapse than ever before’.
Although the 2016 elections and the EU Referendum were successfully delivered, the AEA argued that the framework for electoral administration was becoming increasingly unfit for purpose. Their report – Pushed to the absolute limit: 2016 – the electoral year never to forget – set out 91 recommendations for reform to prevent adverse effects on the UK’s democratic systems.
The latest whitepaper from Idox Elections looks at some of the challenges facing the UK’s electoral administrators and describes the recommendations for improving the delivery of democratic polls.
