In common usage, "advocacy" refers to the political process by an individual or group which aims to influence public-policy and resource allocation decisions. The word "activism" refers to efforts to promote, impede, or direct social, political, religious, economic, or environmental change. We use the words interchangeably here on electowiki.

There are many electoral reform organizations all over the world. Since electoral reform is heavily dependent on local laws and local communities, many nations and localities have separate chapters for advocacy purposes.
