The Electoral Commission is an independent body that was set up
by the UK Parliament. Our mission is to foster public confidence
and participation in the democratic process, by promoting
integrity, involvement and effectiveness. Our responsibilities
include registering and regulating political parties, reviewing
electoral law and procedures, promoting public awareness of our
electoral systems and advising those involved on the conduct of
elections and referendums.
