Help build the free database of election candidates!

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.

We need your help to gather the names and contact details of the candidates. Right now, we’re particularly interested in council by-elections.

Check out the list of upcoming elections here and help add candidates and their photos, email addresses or social media accounts.

Local newspapers, local political party websites and Twitter are a good place to start!
