Overview

We are the Electoral Commission, and we're here to make sure that your vote matters.

We monitor elections and referendums to make sure they are fair, and promote public confidence in the democratic process.

Part of our job is to make sure that elections are accessible to everyone. We believe that anyone eligible to vote should be able to do so.

Democracy relies in part on good information. We run public awareness campaigns about elections, and make sure that referendum questions are worded in a way that voters can't misinterpret.

To vote in any election in the UK you must be on the electoral register.
