Our report on the 2016 National Assembly for Wales elections

Based on the experience of voters, elections staff and campaigners, we have been able to make the assessment that overall the Assembly elections were well-run with few problems.

One of the findings in the report highlights the challenges presented by the combination of the National Assembly for Wales and Police and Crime Commissioner elections. This has led to the recommendation that the Wales Delivery Group should become permanent and continue to assist with the successful planning of future electoral events.
