Promoting public understanding
of electoral democracy
McDougall is an independent charity which promotes public understanding of electoral democracy. Its special interest is in elections and electoral systems – whether in government at local, national and international level or in voluntary organisations, political parties, companies and trade unions.
Why do people join political parties today, and what do they do for them?
