Voter Registration Week 4-11 March 2024

Get involved in Voter Registration Week: 4-11 March 2024

Citizens UK has established the Voter Registration Champion scheme on the model of its hugely successful Living Wage accreditation scheme, which currently recognises 14,000 employers in the UK who have made a commitment to pay a Real Living Wage to their workers. Crucial to the success of that scheme is Living Wage Week, when accredited Living Wage employers can be celebrated, and the network reaches out to new employers to encourage them to join the movement. Citizens UK is planning to repeat this formula for the Voter Registration Champions scheme – celebrating the first accredited Voter Registration Champions across the UK in its key categories: schools and colleges; universities; employers; and faith and community organisations.

So, what can you do to join us in celebrating Voter Registration Week?

  • Take the first step to becoming an accredited Voter Registration Champion by completing our expression of interest form;
  • Sign up for an information session to find out how your organisation could become accredited as a Voter Registration Champion;
  • Discuss with your colleagues how you could plan a voter registration campaign in your organisation;
  • Post on social media in support of the campaign using the hashtags #VoterRegistrationChampions and #VoterRegistrationWeek.

And if you miss the opportunity to take part in March, there will be two other opportunities this year: National Voter Registration Day is on April 16th 2024 (the deadline for registering to vote for regional mayoral elections in May); and there will be a second Voter Registration Week in the autumn to coincide with the general election.
