Democracy Volunteers

Observing elections to improve democracy


2018 English Local Election Observers

We are now recruiting for UK observers for the English local elections to be held on Thursday 3rd May 2018.

We intend to cover a number of councils across England.

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
  • Willing and enthusiastic to volunteer for long hours

Election observation is an essential part of ensuring that democracy functions and we welcome applications from all sectors of society.

If you are interested in becoming an observer for the local elections please email

CLOSING DATE: 15th December 2017
