Discussing 2020 reform and elections at Stand 15

Print Image Network Ltd, one of the UK’s leading providers of electoral print and mail services, will be joining local authorities and industry experts from across the country at the AEA’s focus day to discuss canvass reform on Monday 9 September 2019.

In 2020 the way in which the annual canvass is conducted will be transformed.  The purpose of the reform is to reduce the administrative burden on EROs and to make the process more citizen focused.

The focus day aims to provide delegates with vital updates and information to allow them to prepare for the reform from July 2020.

Key highlights of the day include: -
