Democracy Club Menu


Our vision is of a country with the digital foundations to support everyone’s participation in democratic life.

Our mission is to create those foundations by:

  • Identifying areas for improvement in democratic engagement;
  • Ensuring everyone has access to quality information on democratic processes, particularly on elections;
  • Mobilising a non-partisan movement of volunteers for democracy.

We are non-partisan and we work openly. We’re a community of 10,000 volunteers and a small core team.

We don’t have a view of ‘the perfect democracy’. Instead, we try to make constant iterative improvements based on citizens’ needs. We judge those needs based on publicly available research, feedback on our websites and online search data.

In this video from March 2016, Joe Mitchell — a co-ordinator at Democracy Club - explains how we try to do this.

What we do

The club

We coordinate a club of thousands of democracy volunteers who do small online tasks to help make democracy better. The club help create our Data and Apps.


We create the tools to aggregate data for democracy and make it available to everyone. This includes lists of elections, candidates and polling locations. Our data is trusted by the Electoral Commission, Google, Facebook, the Guardian and more.


We build apps to answer direct questions from voters, such as ‘Who can I vote for?’ and ‘Where do I vote?’.

Try out the Apps and get the Data via our Projects page.
