We’ve all seen over the past year how brilliant the people in our local places are. Working with and alongside each other is the best way to make the places where we live, work and play better. So we hope you’ll want to be part of these workshops about how we can help more people feel confident in their own ability to change things in our local places – to have influence as active citizens.

Local Democracy Week 2019

Local Democracy Week is a way of helping people to have a voice and be actively involved in the things that really matter in our local communities. There is a free programme of free events throughout October, including a discussion about councillors, opportunities to hear from our young citizens, exhibitions and a talk about the benefits of parish councils.

Democracy Club | Elections data party

Let’s get together to help voters!

Thursday 4th April 2019 from 6pm to 9pm at The Media Centre, 7 Northumberland Street, Huddersfield HD1 1RL

Want to do something practical to improve our local democracy? Join Democracy Club’s volunteers to help gather and publish better information about who you can vote for, ahead of the 2019 local elections in England and Northern Ireland.

We all need to know who we can vote for. But it’s not always easy to find out about your candidates.

At this event, we’ll be taking candidate lists that councils publish and turning this information into useful data that anyone can use.

The information that we gather during the event will then be available to voters via a website called Who Can I Vote For? and via many other websites and apps.

You don’t need any technical knowledge or experience to take part, just a laptop.

Drinks and snacks provided. Drop in at any time.
