Idox Elections is continuing its support of electoral teams across the UK, with a further three customers signing up to its print service offering.
The latest tender wins will see the team work with Wolverhampton City Council, Craven District Council and the Tayside Procurement Consortium – covering Angus, Dundee City and Perth and Kinross Councils – to fulfil a range of print requirements and ensure a smooth, efficient voting process for the thousands of eligible voters in each locality.
The partnerships will involve:
- Provision and distribution of postal packs and ballot books for Wolverhampton City Council for Local Elections, Parliamentary Elections, European Parliamentary elections and other Referenda until 2020;
- Print and distribution of ballot books, poll cards and postal voting packs for Craven District Council for all scheduled elections, and any that may be called on by Parliament, until 2021; and
- Print and distribution of ballot books, poll cards and postal packs for Tayside Procurement Consortium – serving a combined electorate of over 317,000 – until 2021.
For Tayside specifically, the agreement will see Idox Elections also provide a Postal Voting Management System (PVMS) to the Consortium.
By outsourcing printing, local authorities are provided with a complete service that manages the complexities of the print process from consultation and design to printing and distribution. Added benefits include customisation according to a council’s branding, as well as guaranteed reassurance that all electoral legislation has been adhered to.
This latest success demonstrates Idox Elections’ ability to support across the electoral spectrum, reducing local authority workload and delivering democracy in a cost-effective, efficient manner.
