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 WhoCanIVoteFor.co.uk and several other voter information services.

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

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

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