Does Democracy Need Elections? - Essay competition


For a long time it has been noticed that young people aren't voting and the recent local elections were no exception. Despite the massive increase in youth engagement initiatives and the introduction of citizenship education, young people continue to be alienated from formal politics and elections.

However, there is a lot of evidence to suggest that young people are as political as ever, if not more so. But instead of joining political parties and voting, they are joining pressure groups and single-issue campaigns like Make Poverty History and the anti-tuition fees lobby. The recent POWER Report investigating the state of British democracy claimed that the way we are doing politics is killing politics. Are we moving into a new type of democracy? Can we have a democracy without elections? Should we, or how can we, restore the importance of elections as the way in which we make our voice heard?

The Make Votes Count Coalition and X-Change @ Electoral Reform Society have launched an essay competition inviting young people to have their say in the debate about making democracy more modern. We'd like young people to write an essay between 1000 and 1500 words, on the title "Does democracy need elections?" The competition is split into two groups, those 18 and under and those aged 19-26. The essays will be judged by a panel including Lord Tyler, a member of the House of Lords, Bano Murtuja, a member of the Power Commission, and a journalist. Winners will have their essays published, as well as receiving either £150 (18 and under) or £250 (19-26). Prizes will also go to runners up. The deadline is Friday 30 June
