UK Engage is rapidly gaining recognition as a leading partner for Business Improvement District (BID) ballots, serving both local councils and BID companies across the UK. As renowned election services providers and member engagement specialists, our reputation precedes us.

Over the years, we’ve had the privilege of collaborating with numerous local councils and BID companies, including those in Leeds, Bridgend, Northumberland, Warrington, and many more. Notably, we played a pivotal role in guiding our hometown, Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council, to a resounding “YES” vote!
Our service offering is comprehensive and transparent, tailored to meet the unique needs of each local council. We deliver our services with a high degree of professionalism and efficiency, adhering to the strict timelines inherent in the BID ballot process. As earlier five-year term BIDs conclude, we are increasingly being sought after to support and deliver BIDs in their next campaign stages.

Our wealth of experience and expertise is reflected in the successful outcomes our clients have achieved. In most instances, we’ve reported voter turnouts above the UK average of 41%* and have seen an increase in voter turnout and “YES” votes compared to previous BID ballots for the same town centres. Our commitment to delivering results continues to drive us forward.

Our latest successful BID ballots include:

  • Turnout: 50.87%
