Our vision is of a country with digital foundations to support everyone’s participation in democratic life.
Democracy Club makes it easier to find information about local government and elections in the UK. From knowing where to vote, to finding out what is happening in your council. So everyone who wants to take part in public life can find the information they need.
We believe that improving the accessibility of information about local government is core to achieving our vision.
We also work year-round to build tools and services that bring information about councillors and councils into one place.
Everything we do is open with data and APIs.
Our digital tools and data have reached millions of UK voters since 2015.
In our short history, Democracy Club has reached millions of voters with high-quality, accurate election information. We’ve also made great strides towards bringing the UK’s democratic infrastructure into the digital age through our work with local and central government.
Democracy Club is a non-partisan and non-profit Community Interest Company.
Our work is supported by a mix of donations, grants and sales revenue.
We are a small team of software developers, data specialists, geospatial engineers and election experts.
The core team is supported by non-partisan volunteers who are either interested in democracy, open source technology, or both.
During elections, a group of 20 super-volunteers and a community of 300 supporters come together to crowdsource publicly available information like candidate manifestos.
We make our impact by enabling others to work better.
