WebRoots Democracy is the first and only organisation in the United Kingdom to campaign for the introduction of online voting in Local and General Elections.
In addition to this, we are an organisation that intends to reverse growing political apathy and low electoral turnout in the UK, particularly amongst young people. Whilst political apathy has a variety of causes, we recognise that we live in an age of distraction and rapid technological advances. As such, we are also campaigning for an accessible, informative, and interactive election website to help reach out to new voters.
We intend to highlight and research the causes of political apathy amongst young people and boost their voter turnout to ensure that they have a strong electoral voice in the UK.

WebRoots Democracy is an independent, non-partisan organisation.
