Tim Straker QC will return this year to deliver his talk on 'Election Law - update on Key Issues' on Thursday 23rd January 2020 at the Solace Annual Elections Conference.
Aim of the Conference:
2019 has been an extraordinary year, electorally speaking, and the result of the election on December 12th May also see changes to the legislation governing elections, if the promised introduction of voter ID materialises. Chief Executives and Returning Officers are personally responsible for the smooth running and delivery of elections putting their own individual reputations on the line. It is crucial that they keep up-to-date with legislative changes and share best practice to deliver a secure, accurate and efficient democratic process, especially as that process comes under increasing levels of public scrutiny.
This Solace Annual Election Conference will reflect on lessons from the previous year and look forward to the next to ensure you are best placed to face whatever 2020 may bring, keep your skills and knowledge of this challenging technical area up to the pace of change. The Conference will bring you up-to-date with recent legislative changes and will feature case studies which focus on the key issues faced by all Returning Officers, setting out the things you need to know to keep your election service safe from challenge.
This years conference will be held at the Offices of Grant Thornton. 30 Finsbury Square, London, EC2P 2YU.
