We provide guidance and resources to help Electoral Registration Officers (EROs), Returning Officers (ROs) and their staff in running electoral registration, elections and referendums. We also set standards and monitor the performance of EROs and ROs through our performance standards framework.

On this page you will find links to all of our guidance and resources for electoral administrators and information on reporting against our performance standards.
