mySociety’s guide to the election

Just in case you are a new voter or are confused by our complicated voting system, mySociety have created a guide to the election, aware that many people have questions and misunderstandings about how things work. Zelly Restorick writes.

You may not need this basic guide yourself, but maybe you know people who do.

Part 1: How elections work

Part 2: Deciding who to vote for

Part 3: The voting process

Part 4: Summary: Election check list

mySociety works in three connected areas of civic life:

Their Democracy tools make parliaments more transparent and accountable
Their Freedom of Information platform holds governments to account
Their Better Cities technology helps local authorities and empowers their citizens

mySociety make websites that empower citizens worldwide. They are a not-for-profit social enterprise, based in the UK and working internationally, building online technologies that give people the power to get things changed, and we share these technologies so that they can be used anywhere.
