Month: November 2014
Coming back from paternity leave this week, I was pleased find the Select Committee on Political and Constitutional Reform’s report on Voter Engagement in the UK had been published.
I was honoured to give to be invited to give oral evidence to the committee earlier in the year. Here are my written submissions of evidence to the committee:
- Voter Engagement in the U.K. – first submission focusing on voting and registration technologies, recommending reforms such as election-day registration, motor voter registration, revisiting internet voting, modernising electoral law and further funding of election officials. This was based on my book and findings about individual electoral registration.
- Voter Engagement in the UK – second submission – focusing on the use of performance standards in electoral administration based on my research on performance benchmarking in Electoral Studies.
- ‘Voter Engagement in the U.K.‘, my oral evidence
I’ll blog more thoughts about the report in the coming weeks…..
