Fair elections require fair rules, since the rules are what ensure equal treatment of all participants.

Many organisations, however, are working with constitutions or electoral regulations that fall short of best practice. Drafting and amending such rules is a specialist task, and failure to use appropriate expertise can result in poorly-worded rules that create problems of interpretation and may result in confusion, disputed outcomes and litigation.

Partners and staff of Above Quota Elections have many years experience in working with all types of electoral rules, and can provide detailed technical advice ranging from the complete redrafting of constitutional provisions through to interpretations of specific regulations.
