Advertising Electoral Supplies & Services

If you are an electoral services supplier, i.e. a company or organisation that manufactures and/or sells electoral products to local authorities’ electoral administrators, you may take advantage of the various advertising services we provide. If you are already familiar with the information on this page and have decided to proceed, the online request form is at the foot of the page.

Communication with members

Every week, via its newsletter, the Association’s communications team provide our 2000+ members with the latest news and information about what’s going on in the world of electoral services. Every single member receives a personalised email as soon as the newsletter is published.

Once a quarter, the Association’s quarterly Arena magazine provides less formal content whilst still reporting relevant current news and information. As is the case with the newsletter, every member is individually notified of the magazine’s publication.

In addition, news updates are published on the website on a daily basis and the site is packed with guidance and other informative material to assist our members in their work.

Advertising opportunities

The Association’s website is a great way of advertising to anyone who accesses both the members’ and public areas of the site; the newsletter can carry advertisements, as can Arena, and we can also send advertising features to each individual AEA member.

An organisation providing supplies and services to those engaged in the administration of elections and electoral registration can arrange to have its own web page in the site’s public area, containing information about their products and services with relevant contact details. Those taking up this option will also have a banner advertisement/logo displayed on the members’ home page. See below for a list of companies who have already taken advantage of this form of promotional advertising; each one is a link to their page:-

Please be aware that the submission of an order for any form of advertising does not guarantee its implementation and the AEA reserves the right to decide not to publish or circulate any material submitted in support of it.

Files containing all advertising material can be uploaded during completion of the online order form but please ensure that advertisements for inclusion exclusively in the weekly newsletter (not the combined newsletter/ARENA) are uploaded via the form, or sent by email to the Website Manager by no later than 12 noon on the Monday of the week in which the newsletter is published.

Individual email distribution of advertising features to all AEA members can be undertaken on any date of your choosing; these can also be uploaded via the form or sent to the Website Manager but please submit them at least two working days before the email distribution takes place. See below for various aids to the process.
