Encouraging political participation at every level

UseYourVote Campaign

What is Use Your Vote?

Use Your Vote is an all-party and non-aligned national campaign that is determined to build political literacy and enhance democratic engagement and active citizenship across all age groups. ‘Bringing the vote out’ is expected to be one outcome of the exercise but the campaign’s wider purpose is to encourage individuals to think more broadly about the concept of voting, democratic engagement and getting involved – a much more regular experience, and a richer one, than something that happens every five years at a General Election within the confines of a ballot box.

Our intention is that the useyourvote.com brand identity will appear on letterheads, on social media across the web, in advertisements, in communications from a whole range of public bodies, and alongside a range of national brands, understated but always there – very much in the quiet yet highly visible and authoritative style modelled by initiatives such as Investors in People – and conveying a message of personal encouragement, social concern and corporate responsibility.

We neither seek to displace or duplicate existing campaigns targeted, for instance, at specific demographics. Instead, we want to work alongside and seek to give expression to these vital initiatives, while building Use Your Vote as a mass campaign, aware of the needs of specific groups but aimed at every voter in every constituency.

What do we want to achieve?

By the time of the 2029 General Election we want to see a tangible reverse in a democratic deficit that has been growing for over a quarter of a century, and we want to see the Use Your Vote ‘Ballot Box’ identity posted just about everywhere it can be – approximately a third of the population do not vote in General Elections and in other elections the figures are, typically, much bleaker, and apparently getting worse.

We’ll need all sorts of support to reverse this trend, including financial backing from those in business who care about the heath of our democracy, but most of all, we need your support and your energy to build this into a mass campaign that strengthens our society, our communities, and our citizenship at every level.

"We are fortunate to live in a country which values democracy whilst others fight wars to obtain this right. Despite this sadly a vast proportion of the UK population, particularly young people do not exercise their right to vote. This year we will have the chance to make a monumental decision - deciding on whether the UK remains in the European Union or not. Those in London will have the chance to choose a new Mayor. These are important choices which will impact millions. Use your vote and make your voice heard."
