Hello, here's what we do

Britain Elects is a poll aggregation service that aims to deliver non-partisan commentary and analysis of the state of British politics and public opinion as well as the provision of an open source archive of opinion polls and election results, be they council or parliamentary.

We entirely voluntary, set up by those with an experience and interest in consultancy and politics.

Founded by Ben Walker and Lily Jayne Summers in 2013.

Remembering Lily Jayne Summers, 1993 - 2016


On 16 December, 2016, our Co-Founder, Lily Jayne Summers, sadly passed away.

Lily was integral to the development of Britain Elects, working hard on every national election night since its founding in 2013. She was a passionate person committed to the politics she believed in, and she enjoyed the part she played in BE. She was authentic, ambitious, funny, quick witted, always up for an argument, and heartwarming to those who knew her. She was a student at Swansea University, a council candidate for the Labour Party and formerly active with the Salvation Army.

She was a great colleague, but to me she was more my closest friend than anything else. Lily meant so much. I’m shocked and sorry to see her taken from this world at such a young age.

– Ben, Co-Founder
