About Local Democracy Dashboard

Welcome to the Local Democracy Dashboard. Created by Joshua Townsley (LSE), Professor Patrick Dunleavy (LSE) and Dr. James F Downes (CUHK), we are a Democratic Audit project based at the London School of Economics. Our aim is to promote engagement in local democracy by making an array of information more accessible. In so doing, we hope to play a part in using the digital environment to spread local political engagement.

The Local Democracy Dashboard would not be possible without data from the Electoral Commission, Open Council Data UKAndrew TealeBritain Elects, and DemocracyClub. The Local Democracy Dashboard is especially grateful to Andrew Lam (CUHK) for Research Assistance.
