star this property answer text <p>The Government has no immediate plans to assess the potential merits of requiring the compatibility of registration officers’ systems for managing registration data between local authority areas. All registration officers’ systems have compatibility with the Individual Electoral Registration Digital Service (IERDS), which allows Electoral Registration Officers to notify other officers of moved electors, as well as other functionalities. Cabinet Office officials are, however, working on a continual basis to ensure all necessary improvements are made to the IERDS to ensure it serves the needs of local Electoral Registration Officers.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>With the introduction of Individual Electoral Registration (IER) in 2014, the Cabinet Office worked with the Electoral Management Systems (EMS) providers to ensure they were compatible with the Government’s IER Digital Service. Compatibility with the IER Digital Service means that Electoral Registration Officers (EROs) can manage registration data through their EMS by downloading applications submitted through the Register to Vote website, uploading applications to be verified with the Department of Work and Pensions, and notifying other EROs about electors who have moved from their area. We continue to work with the suppliers to ensure any changes to the IER Digital Service retain compatability with the EMSs.</p> more like this
