National Democracy Week, 2nd July 2018

The inaugural National Democracy Week starts on Monday 2nd July 2018, the 90th anniversary of the 1928 Equal Franchise Act which gave women the same voting rights as men.

This is an opportunity to use all of our experience, insight and passion to deliver a programme of activity that encourages democratic participation.

Regardless of who we are or where we are from, we must work together to ensure that every member of society has an equal chance to participate in our democracy and to have their say.

National Democracy Week, 2-8 July, is week-long celebration of democracy in society, including events, talks and fun activities, an opportunity to celebrate progress and champion future democratic participation in this historic Centenary year of Suffrage.

National Democracy Week
is being delivered in collaboration by the National Democracy Week Council members, the Cabinet Office and partners across the country. Together we will deliver a range of exciting democratic engagement activities in the lead up to and during the week.
