But thats not what they are talking about?
The UK's electoral system is stuck in the 19th Century and is under "severe strain", a report says.
The Electoral Commission said the rules on running elections should be simpler and the role of returning officers should be strengthened.
It also backs new electoral management boards, to support and co-ordinate local elections.
Commission chairman Sam Younger said "a consistently high standard of service for all electors" was needed.
The report follows the 2007 elections in Scotland, which were plagued by delays and in which more than 140,000 ballot papers were rejected.
An independent study found mistakes at all levels and suggested voters were treated as an "afterthought".
The commission said it was unlikely that the "current fragmented arrangements for electoral administration" would be used if the system was being designed from scratch.
The planning and running of elections need to be more robust and co-ordinated
It proposes that funding for electoral administration should be improved, changes to electoral law finalised at least six months before any election and returning officers' roles strengthened.
It also suggests bringing returning officers and registration officers together into regional electoral management boards to co-ordinate local elections.
And the commission says its own role should be strengthened to keep checks on standards of those in charge of running elections.
The report calls for existing laws on managing elections to be "rationalised and consolidated" and focused on "clearly articulating electoral policy rather than micro-managing the delivery of elections".
Mr Younger said: "The planning and running of elections need to be more robust and co-ordinated. We are still trying to run 21st Century elections with 19th Century structures, and the system is under severe strain."He added: "Our proposal is designed to allow local returning officers to continue to respond to local circumstances while ensuring that there is a consistently high standard of service for all electors across the UK."
