Shake Up Democracy

Give Your Vote is a campaign for democracy in a global world.

It’s simple: you give your vote to someone in Afghanistan, Bangladesh or Ghana. They use it to be part of the debate on decisions that affect them by casting a real vote in the 2010 UK election.

Together we're calling for a world where people have an equal say in the decisions that affect them, no matter where they are.
