Help build the free database of election candidates!

Time required: Ten minutes

It can be hard to find good information about election candidates online.

So Democracy Club has created the free, public database of UK election candidates. This powers websites like and several other voter information services.

We need your help to gather more information on the candidates for by-elections.

When searching for more information on candidates, local political party websites, Facebook and Twitter are a good place to start!
