Abstract

Campaigners are promoting a wide range of reforms for the UK’s democratic system, including changing the electoral system, lowering the voting age or allowing people to vote online. While many look overseas for examples of how these innovations work in practice, Richard Berry explains in this post that each has already been introduced at NHS Foundation Trust elections. Although public participation in these elections is lower than hoped when Foundation Trusts were established in 2004, he argues, the research community could learn a great deal by studying how they conduct elections.
