IamA Matt Chocqueel-Mangan & I set up Vote For Policies to help voters make an informed choice in the UK General Election: AMA!
**Description: Vote for Policies is a non-profit, independent organisation with a mission to increase participation in elections, and make policies the focus of voting decisions.
The interactive, mobile friendly website allows individuals to compare policies, in the words of each of the main political parties, without knowing which party they belong to.
It has received funding from the Joseph Rowntree Reform Trust and over 900 crowd funders. In 2010 it had 550,000 users and has since updated its site to include policies from Scottish, Welsh and Northern Irish parties.
Founder, Matt Chocqueel-Mangan will take part in A.M.A. Here’s his story: https://voteforpolicies.org.uk/blog/why-i-set-up-vote-for-policies/
“I’ve gone from knowing next to nothing about politics to listening out for the latest policy announcements, so I can make sure the site is updated. Vote for Policies took me on this journey from political apathy to engagement, and I hope it will do the same for thousands of others.”
