Collect local election manifestos for May!

Manifestos are the documents that describe a political party’s plan for when they are in government.

Political parties often produce local manifestos for local elections, but these don’t get very much media attention.

We would like to help more voters find the manifestos for their area.

To do that, we need a list of the manifestos. Each needs to be linked to the party that proposes it and the election to which it refers.

You can search for manifestos online. Once you’ve found one, please add it to this database!
