Voting Counts is a simple, unbiased political resource that helps you make informed decisions when voting.
Voting Counts was set up in 2014 by Rachael, who was studying for her A-levels, when she found that many of her friends did not intend to vote because they didn’t feel informed enough about politics.
“I founded the website after hearing that some my friends didn’t feel ‘informed enough’ to vote. They had lots of questions about how elections actually impacted their lives, and who they should vote for. Although I have my own political views, I wanted to create a resource that would help them learn about the importance of voting, and come to their own conclusions about who to support.”
Voting Counts now has contributors from across the political spectrum, who all have the same aim of encouraging political engagement, while maintaining political neutrality to empower young adults to make their own informed decisions.
If you have any questions about Voting Counts, or if you would like to help out with the organisation please email us. We are also happy to respond to any media enquiries you may have.
We are always looking for volunteers to help us produce content for the website.
The content our volunteers create is politically neutral, simple, and informative. All volunteers are fully credited for their work, and we are happy to supply references for those that have contributed to our website.
