The Future of Polling Station Management:
Modern Democracy Webinars

Returning Officers and Electoral Service Managers have been under pressure for a long time: now the pandemic has put the issues you face into sharp focus. Modern Democracy has always been an agent for positive change and so we’re taking this opportunity to host a series of Webinars that focus on the challenges you face and the opportunities for safe, secure, positive polling that we can deliver together. You’ll also hear from local authorities who are already reaping the benefits of Modern Polling, the Digital Poll Clerk.
