Acting as your trusted Independent Scrutineer or Returning Officer, we offer innovative and secure democratic voting services for elections, ballots, referendums, consultations and AGMs. At UK Engage, we do things differently; we look at our clients’ objectives and develop solutions to help achieve them.
This ranges from encouraging nominations to fill all vacant seats, to improving voter turnout. We do this by using communication techniques to improve member engagement and improve particpation.
Each year our printed ballot packs and online voting system are among the democratic voting services used by hundreds of organisations. Our clients include companies from vertical market sectors, such as membership organisations, professional bodies, NHS Foundation Trusts, pension schemes, charities, co-operatives and mutuals, social housing, and trade unions.
UK Engage was established in 2009. We are an end-to-end election services provider and specialist division of award-winning electoral print and mail specialist, Print Image Network.
Print Image Network has grown into a strategic print partner to local authorities from across the county. Today, the business delivers millions of items of electoral stationery for statutory elections.
With a strong electoral heritage behind it, our UK Engage brand has enjoyed similar success in the non-statutory election market, bringing its unique election services to hundreds of organisations. With the launch of a new online voting system in recent years and a great reputation for engaging with client’s members, we continue to be a leader in voting services for elections, ballots, polls, referendums, AGMs, EGMs, SGMs and consultations.

Each year, UK Engage employees put forward the names of charities that they would like the company to support. Once all of the nominations are in, employees vote (democratically via our online voting system), to select the three charities they would most like to support. Once the votes are in the three charities that have received the most votes are our chosen charities for the year. This year we are proud to support Cancer Research, Francis House Children’s Hospice and The Wellspring.
