  • Community Engagement
  • Internet
  • Open Source

Democracy Club aims to make the process of democracy better for everyone. It believes there is a lot of work needed to be done to bring the UK political system into the digital age, and its tools help.

Some of the things they do are:

  • Organising a group of several thousand volunteers who want to make democracy better
  • Crowdsourcing and maintaining a list of candidates for elections
  • Running a polling station finder to make it possible to find out where you can vote, online
  • Building voter information services, like 2015’s YourNextMP.com, helping 1m+ people learn about their local candidates
  • Running a register of elections
  • Collecting election leaflets in a public archive
