UK political parties

The following is a list of all political parties represented by candidates in Democracy Club's UK election database (est. 2015). This list includes registered and deregistered parties.

There are two party registers in the UK: a combined Great Britain register for England, Wales and Scotland, and a separate register for Northern Ireland. Parties in Great Britain can only field candidates in the nations they have specified in their entry.

A registered party may field candidates in elections.

A deregistered party may no longer field candidates in elections. A party can become deregistered through choice, or because it failed to renew its annual registration status. In some cases, parties have been deregistered and then subsequently reregistered; in these cases, the party will have an entry for each registration.

Party names and emblems are taken from the Electoral Commission's register of political parties.
