Advertising Electoral Supplies & Services

This page provides electoral suppliers with relevant information concerning the various opportunities for advertising their services with the AEA. If you are already familiar with the information on this page and have already 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 1800+ members with the latest news and information about what’s going on in the world of electoral services. Every single member receives a personalised e-mail as soon as the newsletter is published.

Once a month, the Association’s flagship Arena magazine provides members with a more in depth look at what is going on with events, local authorities, government and our electoral partners. As is the case with the newsletter, every member is individually notified of the magazine’s publication. It should be pointed out that a newsletter is not produced in the week that the monthly ARENA is published but all newsletter material is combined with the magazine.

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:-

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 e-mail to the Website Manager by no later than 12 noon on the Monday of the week in which the newsletter is published.

Individual e-mail 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 e-mail distribution takes place. See below for various aids to the process.
