Performance standards for EROs

We have been carrying out a consultation on draft performance standards for Electoral Registration Officers.  

We are grateful for the feedback we have received to date, whether by way of responses to the consultation or through discussions at AEA and SAA meetings. However, we understand that some of you who might have wanted to respond to the consultation have not been able to do so given the current circumstances. 

Recognising this and the impact of the coronavirus pandemic more generally, we are now considering how we can review our approach to the performance standards work, balancing the importance of making the standards and supporting tools and templates available to support you to deliver this year’s canvass while ensuring that we are also able to remain flexible to the current circumstances and to respond to any further feedback you may want to provide. We will keep you updated in future Bulletins as these plans develop.
