United Kingdom Local Elections 2021 (Moved from 2020)

If you are interested in becoming an observer for the forthcoming UK local elections do send us an email with your CV for us to consider. We are presently recruiting for observers across England for the elections on 6th May 2021. We are also looking for observers for the 2021 Scottish parliamentary and National Assembly for Wales elections on the same day.

Observers do not need to be UK nationals but should be over 18 and able to demonstrate they are not biased (such as being a member of a UK political party). Core skills for the role are:

  • An eye for detail
  • Capacity to be impartial – you should not be a political party member
  • Willing and enthusiastic to volunteer for long hours

Independent election observation is an essential part of ensuring that democracy functions and we welcome applications from all sectors of society. No specific qualifications are required as we do wish to reflect the society in which we function. The election is likely to be highly contested and we are calling for observers to observe elections in all the regions and nations of the UK.

If you are interested in becoming an observer for the local elections please email info@democracyvolunteers.org and we will arrange for one of the team to get in touch with you as soon as possible.

APPLICATIONS ARE OPEN UNTIL 31/12/20

FULL ONLINE TRAINING WILL BE PROVIDED
