Electoral Law (Scoping)

Open date: 15 June 2012

Close date: 17 September 2012

Elections are the principal mechanism by which citizens exercise their rights over those who govern in their name. The law governing the administration of elections should therefore meet the reasonable expectations of citizens, electoral administrators, and other participants.

Our electoral law project is split into three phases, with review points between phases. The first phase is the scoping exercise, incorporating the consultation phase which started on 15 June. The consultation period ends on 17 September 2012; a scoping report will be published at the end of that year.

You can respond to this consultation by email to: public@lawcommission.gsi.gov.uk or by post to: Public Law team, Law Commission, Steel House, 11 Tothill Street, London SW1H 9LJ. If you send your comments by post, it would be helpful if, where possible, you could also sent them to us electronically (in any commonly used format).

This consultation relates to our electoral law project.
