UseYourVote Campaign

In the UK most candidates in most elections belong to a political party, although some do not belong to any party and stand as ‘Independents’.

Click on the party logos below to find out about the party concerned. Even if you think that you are already committed to one party, we’d advise you to find out about all of the parties standing in any election in which you have decided to ‘Use Your Vote’.

English, Scottish & Welsh Local Elections

"Any attempt to get more people interested and involved in politics should be greeted with open arms, so Use Your Vote's campaign to boost turnout is very welcome. As flawed as Britain's First Past the Post voting system is, it's vital that people have their say on who represents them, and get stuck in with the issues that affect us all. In a democracy, politics can't be left to a select few, so we wish the Use Your Vote project every success."
