Briefings on current legislation and key Parliamentary and Assembly debates

On this page you will find briefings that we have prepared for members of the UK Parliament, Scottish Parliament, National Assembly for Wales and Northern Ireland Assembly on legislation and debates that affect issues related to our work.

Our briefings

Part of our role is to advise the Governments, Parliaments and Assemblies of our views to ensure that the rules around all aspects of elections are as clear and simple as possible and that the interests of voters are always put first.

To achieve this, we produce briefings for Parliamentarians and Assembly Members to consider as they debate legislation or any other issues or matters that affect our role and what we do. We may also write directly to Government Ministers advising them of our views.
