European Parliamentary and Local Elections (Pilots) Act 2004

Section 4: Electoral Commission report

17.This section provides that the Electoral Commission must report on each pilot election held under this Act, and for this purpose must consult with the council for every county or district in the region where a pilot election was held. The councils are required to assist the Commission in fulfilling this function. The aspects of the pilot election on which the Commission must report are specified in section 4(6)-(10). The report must be published within 3 months from the date of declaration of the result of the election, and the Commission’s duty to report on the administration of the election under section 5 of the Political Parties, Elections and Referendums Act 2000 remains unaffected.
