Non Partisan  - How We're Different

MORE THAN A REVIEW

General

We work hard to keep data safe – for everyone. We’re transparent in how we collect, use and protect this information. We take the reliability and trust of our service very seriously and would love to hear from you with any suggestions, feedback or questions.

What is Review Your Politician?

Review Your Politician is the UK’s #1 Political Review service, dedicated to empowering voters and politicians. For voters, we’re a place to empower them to share and discover reviews for politicians. For politicians, we’re a platform to empower them to engage with their voters and towards electoral success.

What solution are you trying to solve?

Review Your Politician gives voters a place to share and discover reviews of politicians, and politicians can engage with their voters and build long-term electoral support. Our service empowers voters and politicians to have a more significant say in the democratic process.

Our service aims to put transparency and trust at the heart of politics. 

 

We help voters make more informed electoral decisions based on real reviews. The VoterScore signifies that a politician has nothing to hide, actively engages with their voters, and shares our mission of empowering voters.

 

By reviewing the work of elected representatives, voters play a crucial role in making politicians more informed about community issues. Reviews help to ensure that politicians better represent their constituents and community.

How does your business model work?

Review Your Politicians is a 100% non-partisan service. We’re not associated with, or supported by, any single political party, outside organisation or otherwise. Politicians, or outside organisations, can’t – and will never – influence voter reviews published.

 

We’re a review platform for everyone, regardless of persons political beliefs. Our mission is to help all voters and politicians, making politics inclusive for everyone.

 

Review Your Politician is 100% funded by a nominal yearly fee from politicians claiming their profile. Politicians registering with our service can engage with their voters to build long-term electoral support.

 

The nominal yearly fee allows us to pay for all the technical aspects of our service for it to operate across the UK, and to enable the creation of regular content updates for the benefit of everyone.

Who can write a review?

Reviews are only permitted from people, over the age of 16, living in the UK. A politician is not allowed to submit a review under any circumstances.

 

 

We implement strict security policies to verify all reviews are from real people, while also respecting a person’s right to privacy. Profiles with reviews that have passed our verification process are marked with “Verified Review”.

 

 

All reviews submitted must also comply with our Privacy Policy and User Guidelines, with no exceptions.

Who can respond to a review?

Review Your Politician allows politicians to engage with their voters by responding to reviews, and to build long-term electoral support. Non-politicians are not permitted to claim a profile, respond to reviews or request a re-review.

How are reviews collected?

We give everyone a voice. Voters can share their experiences, and politicians can invite and respond to reviews. Reviews on our service come from a variety of sources. We use technology to track the source of a review.

 

  • Organic – A review submitted on the profile of a politician using the review form on the ‘Write A Review’ page, or via a Google search.
  • Social Media – A review submitted by using a link (URL) on social media (e.g. Facebook, post, Tweet, etc.).
  • Invited – A review submitted by a voter after receiving an invite from a politician.
Do you edit or delete reviews?
We do not, and will not, edit a review submitted on our service, before or after it is published. Factors taken into consideration when judging whether a review complies with our User Guidelines includes, but is not limited to, the review containing language that could be interpreted as rude, inflammatory, defamatory or libellous. We reserve the right to remove reviews from our service where we determine it contravenes our User Guidelines or security policies.

In the UK, there are 650 MPs, 20 London Assembly members, 60 Welsh Assembly members and 129 members of the Scottish Parliament. There are approximately 20,000 Councillors in the UK, representing county, district, and metropolitan borough councils. These politicians predominantly represent the Conservative Party, Labour Party, Liberal Democrats, SNP and Plaid Cymru, with a large number of independent politicians in political office in the UK.

Profiles for politicians on our service are added according to the following criteria:

 

  • A review submitted using the form here;
  • A review submitted on social media;
  • By largest population size in cities across the UK;
  • Political office, including cabinet, shadow cabinet positions, or similar;
  • Popularity in the media, including newspaper publications and social media.
 

Our aim in 2020/21 is to feature profiles and information on all politicians across the UK.

What are the rules for submitting a review?

We give everyone a voice. Voters can share their experiences, and politicians can invite and respond to reviews. All reviews must comply with our Privacy Policy, User Guidelines and security procedures, with no exceptions.

 

We prioritise quality, transparency, privacy and security at all stages in the review process. All reviews submitted must be verified by email, SMS (text) message or on Facebook. Your full name, email address, telephone number, address and Facebook details will not be shared on our service and to politicians.

How do you prevent fake reviews?

Truth and trust are at the heart of our service and guide our practices at all times. Our dedicated team protect our service from fake reviews. We use a combination of technology, human judgement and a range of data to combat against fake reviews.


Every review is authenticated by our team, from day one. All reviews submitted must be verified by email, SMS (text) message or on Facebook. Our custom fake review system uses technology to automatically detect and flag suspicious reviews submitted, removing them from our service.


We implement strict security policies to verify all reviews are from real people, while also respecting a person’s right to privacy. Profiles with reviews that have passed our verification process are marked with “Verified Review”.

How we're different - Review Your Politician

MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD

For Voters

We believe that giving you the chance to share your review on a politician helps to improve politics for everyone. Your review helps a politician to become better and allows them to show that they care about what matters to you.

Your review will also help other voters make better-informed decisions when they decide to vote in an election, while at the same time politicians can use your feedback to improve for all voters. Everyone wins when you write a review.

Yes. However, in the interests of fairness, proportionality and accuracy, we’ve put procedures in place for the approval of multiple reviews.

 

The rules for submitting multiple reviews are as follows:

 

  1. multiple reviews (i.e. more than one) should relate to the work done by a politician(s) in the constituency or ward that you currently reside, or vote in at the time of an election.
  2. In the event of a politician having a ‘Special’ position (ref. 2(1)), you may leave a review on the work the politician has done or is doing, as it relates to the acts while in the ‘Special’ position.
    1. The ‘Special’ position relates exclusively to a Leader of a UK local authority or Cabinet member(s) in the same UK local authority.
 

Notwithstanding the rules above, Review Your Politician reserves the right to ban or suspend a review if it contravenes our User Guidelines.
