Ahead of June’s historic EU Referendum, the Electoral Commission is hosting a Briefing Event for international visitors planning to observe the EU Referendum, including Senior Officials from Electoral Bodies across the world. If you’re an academic, work for an international body that observes elections or have a long-standing interest in elections and referendums then this could be the perfect event for you.
The day is being coordinated and delivered by Dods on our behalf and will take place on Tuesday 21 June in Central Manchester, UK.
While the briefing is mainly designed for international visitors it’s also open to those based in the UK. The briefing is a unique opportunity to hear direct from the Chief Counting Officer for the referendum, Jenny Watson, in the last few days before this historic poll. There will also be a range of experts speaking about the background to the referendum and the campaigning activity that has taken place over the past few months.
Event Details When: Tuesday 21 June
Where: Central Manchester, UK
Timings: 10.00-17.00 (followed by short reception)
Fine print: This event is free (including lunch). However, neither the Electoral Commission nor Dods is able to book or cover any travel, accommodation or subsistence.
Places for this event are limited and will be allocated on a first-come first-served basis. If you are you or a colleague is interested in attending the briefing please contact Referendum2016@dods.co.uk to request a place or find out more.
If you’d like more information about observing at elections and referendums in the UK, including the details of the accreditation process, you can find everything you need to know on our website.
We look forward to hearing from you.
