Electoral Reform Services Ltd (ERSL)

The UK's leading independent supplier of ballot and election services; Electoral Reform Services Ltd, is the Electoral Reform Society’s main funding source in the form of an annual dividend.

ERSL's work includes organising and administering ballots, elections and referendums impartially and independently of any government, political party or other influence. Together with its specialist subsidiary businesses, Membership Engagement Services (www.membra.co.uk) and Xpress Software Solutions (www.xssl.co.uk), the group works to enrich democracy through facilitating meaningful research, communication and engagement.

The Electoral Reform Society is a minority shareholder in ERSL, but takes no operational role in its activities. Both organisations are entirely separate in terms of governance, management and administration.
