What is Love Your Vote?

Love Your Vote aims to raise awareness of voting and to increase the number of people who vote, to give everyone the chance to shape the future of the country. 

For over a year we've been working with the Houses of Parliament to arrange workshops around the country to explain the process of politics and how to vote. These workshops have been delivered to over 1000 people.

We aren't running Love Your Vote workshops anymore but the Parliamentary Outreach Service run training courses throughout the year. Find out more.

You can also hold a free Ask Your Question event where people with learning disabilities and autism can quiz local MPs about issues important to them.

There will be more opportunities to vote and support someone else to. Talk to your local electoral office and find out more about voting and how to help make it more accessible; holding a mock election is a great way to get used to the voting process and printing mock voting sheets is a good way to practice. 

We're also encouraging people to register to vote, and support others to. If you don't register you won't be able to vote in any elections, including local.

Have your say and Love Your Vote!
