Tech and the 2017 general election: a meetup

location Newspeak House | 6:30 PM-10 PM Thursday 20 April 2017 (GMT)

There's going to be a UK General Election on Thurs 8 June.

Last time around, Democracy Club — a non-partisan group of technologists — used digital tech to help voters get better informed about their candidates. We reached millions of voters.

This time, there's lots more stuff we can do — with your help! And we want more ideas!

This will be an open space session where we get together to talk data infrastructure, how we use that data, how we know what voters want, how we can use it, test it, research it.

Everyone is welcome — from activists to designers to techies — so long as you're willing to do stuff!

A quick first draft of our plans, questions, resources etc is going in this Google Doc:

Not in London? Organise your own meetup and add it here: Tweet it @democlub and we'll help publicise it!
