Democratic Engagement Resources

6 January 2022

The Electoral Commission is encouraging local councils to engage with voters to raise awareness about democracy, from voter registration to voting options.

The resources are available in a variety of formats, so you can choose the best option for your audience. There are social media graphics and template posts, as well as posters that you can print, and template press releases.

Annual Canvass
These include Annual Canvass Resources to ensure voters details are correct on the electoral register.

Voter Registration and Information
There are voter registration resources utilising the ‘Got 5?’ campaign to encourage people to register to vote and voter information resources.

Welsh Resources
Resources are also available to promote registering to vote in Wales in light of the changes to who can vote (no matter where you were born, if you live in Wales and are 16 or over, you can now vote in Senedd elections.) This will support newly-enfranchised voters to participate in the May 2022 elections.

Officers can use the materials to promote democratic participation in their communities.
