Donate to the Electoral Reform Society
Help fund the campaign to build a better democracy
Donate for reform

For over 100 years we have been fighting for a better democracy and your support is vital.

There are still serious problems with politics in the UK:

  • a disengaged and dissatisfied electorate,
  • under-representation of women in parliament,
  • a 100 years out-of-date unelected House of Lords.

Despite the rest of the world fighting hard for their democratic rights, in the UK less and less of us are bothering to turn out to vote at all.

We believe voters should be at the heart of British politics and you can help us by giving whatever you can afford through our secure online system. Donate now...
