Print Image Network exhibits at the AEA canvass reform focus day

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: –

  • Final policy positions following consultation with the Electoral Commission
  • Next steps and timings for 2020
  • Detailed information on the new options for canvass
  • The Electoral Commission’s guidance, voter materials, registration form design and performance standards

John Foster, Managing Director at Print Image Network commented on attending the canvass reform focus day. “As one of the most established providers in the industry, we are confident that our expertise and support will assist local authorities through the new canvass reform. Our experienced team will be on hand at Stand 15 to discuss practical measures for reform and how we can play our part in making the new structure effective for EROs and councils.”
