About

The Electoral Commission is an independent body set up by the UK Parliament. Our aim is integrity and public confidence in the democratic process.
We:

  • register political parties
  • make sure people understand and follow the rules on party and election finance
  • publish details of where parties and candidates get money from and how they spend it
  • set the standards for running elections and report on how well this is done
  • make sure people understand it is important to register to vote, and know how to vote
  • make sure boundary arrangements for local government in England are fair
     

Further details of how we aim to achieve the above can be found in our corporate plan while our functions and powers are set out in the Political Parties, Elections and Referendums Act 2000.
