The Select Committee on the Electoral Registration and Administration Act 2013 has today issued a further public call for evidence to explore the key issues and challenges arising from the 2019 UK General Election in relation to electoral registration and administration. Submissions must be received by 4pm on Wednesday 4 March 2020.

Questions the Committee are seeking to answer include:

  • Do you think the 2019 UK General Election was well run?
  • Do you have concerns about voting fraud or related offences taking place during the 2019 UK General Election?
  • There were again a significant number of registration applications during the election period, as well as high levels of postal and proxy voting. What issues does this create for the electoral process?
  • What further changes might be needed to improve the registration process for voters and administrators?
  • In the light of the 2019 UK General Election and other recent electoral events, has the individual registration process met its objectives successfully?
  • What were the main challenges around raising public awareness and encouraging eligible electors to register ahead of the 2019 UK General Election?
