ERS Cymru

The Electoral Reform Society Cymru operates on a simple premise – that politics can be better than it is. We are campaigning for a better democracy in Wales, and across the UK.

ERS Cymru, Cardiff Bay / Suite 5, Platform, Hemingway Road, Cardiff, CF10 5LS

Our vision is a representative democracy fit for the 21st century. We know that every year that passes with our steam age political system still in place, is a year of missed opportunity for the people of Wales.
