About Us

The Electoral Reform Society is an independent campaigning organisation working to champion the rights of voters and build a better democracy in Britain.


What does the Electoral Reform Society do?


Putting voters first


We believe that politics is too important to be left to the politicians. We will offer an independent voice, and work across Britain to shape the democratic debate at all levels. We put the interests of the citizens within our democracy first.

Setting the terms of the debate

We are a respected voice, engaging in living debates, keen to learn from others, impartially assessing issues to develop solutions. We use first principles to develop new ideas and practical policies to strengthen our politics today.

Campaigning for change

We campaign collaboratively to help create the democracy we deserve.
Our staff in England, Wales and Scotland work together with our members, supporters and partners to fight for change. We will provide the tools and the ammunition to campaign for a better democracy.
