How We’re Creating Change

As the longest-standing pro-democracy organisation in the world, we work alongside parties, politicians, academics and other campaigners across the UK to secure a fairer political system.

The Electoral Reform Society campaigns for reform:

  • Behind the scenes: Our research team conducts independent, in-depth and timely research into the state of our political system, in addition to working with top academics across the UK and internationally, to provide the evidence base for our campaigns and policy.
  • Through the media: Press officers provide in-depth analysis, opinion pieces and interviews to journalists, pushing vital democratic issues higher up the news agenda to increase public support.
  • Online: The ERS website and social media channels are go-to sources of information on how Westminster’s political system works, introducing the public to Westminster’s broken system.
  • In parliament: Our public affairs and campaigns team work constructively with parliamentarians and activists across the political spectrum, including hosting events at party conferences to secure commitments to political reform in manifestos.
