The Electoral Commission

Overview

The Electoral Commission is the independent body which oversees elections and regulates political finance in the UK. We work to promote public confidence in the democratic process and ensure its integrity by:

  • enabling the delivery of free and fair elections and referendums, focusing on the needs of electors and addressing the changing environment to ensure every vote remains secure and accessible 
  • regulating political finance – taking proactive steps to increase transparency, ensure compliance and pursue breaches 
  • using our expertise to make and advocate for changes to our democracy, aiming to improve fairness, transparency and efficiency.

The Electoral Commission was set up in 2000 and reports directly to the UK and Scottish Parliaments.

 

Equality scheme 2014

This is our statutory equality scheme for Great Britain and Northern Ireland. It sets out how we aim to promote equality and diversity as an employer, through our work on effective regulation of party and election finance and setting standards for well-run elections and electoral registration.

The scheme identifies our equality and diversity priorities and contains an action plan setting out our on-going activities and other work we will undertake to meet our priorities.
