ERS

ERS is the UK’s leading election administrators and consultants, with over 120 years experience and expertise.  With experience of working on over 30 BID ballots in England, we are able to guide you through both phases of the BID ballot process, thereby freeing you from the additional administration that complex electoral procedures can generate.   At the same time your electorate will have confidence in the impartiality and independence of the election process and its result.

ERS are repeatedly appointed to manage ballots by numerous organisations and companies, including two thirds of all UK local authorities and many FTSE 500 companies.  We have run around 40 BID ballots since the inception of the scheme and have developed a clear and flexible working process that can be tailored to your requirements.

Many BID proposers have looked to the expertise of Electoral Reform Services (ERS) to provide consultancy and balloting services.
