Formerly known as Electoral Reform Services (ERS), we are the UK’s leading provider of election services, with over 100 years' experience of administering elections, ballots and consultation processes. 

Every year, we support hundreds of organisations, across a wide range of sectors, to engage their stakeholders and deliver secure, trusted voting projects. We work with over 75% of the UK’s local authorities, providing electoral registration services and helping them to administer local and general elections. We also work extensively with membership organisations, corporates, building societies and mutuals, NHS bodies and trade unions.

Democracy is in our DNA

We have a long and proud history. Since first administering ballots and elections for rail and mining trade unions over 100 years ago. We have earned an unrivalled reputation for quality, integrity and independence and they continue to be core principles for our business. We ensure our customers can be confident of the security of our processes – and therefore of the results of the vote.

As first timers, we were very impressed with the urgency and vigour with which the team at Civica Election Services dealt with everything starting from the moment we sounded you out regarding the production of our ballot papers and issuing of postal votes right through to polling day. You provided us with the necessary assurance that the processes would be carried out to the highest standard, allowing us to devote our own energies to other important areas of our election preparations.
