5. Supporting local electoral services delivery and resilience in Wales


Local electoral services face significant economic, social and environmental challenges which risk impacting on their ability to deliver well-run elections and referendums. We will help local authorities and electoral administrators in Wales and the wider UK to respond to these pressures. We will work to support the consistent delivery of high-quality services for voters, and the development of resilient local electoral services by:

  • setting challenging performance standards for local electoral services
  • providing accessible guidance and support for electoral administrators
  • supporting increased resilience of local electoral services
  • ensuring the electoral system works effectively
