Democracy Club can help you

1 Find information
on your candidates

Use to find out who your candidates are. If we don't currently hold all the information in our crowd sourced database then help out by finding a source and adding it to the site.

Find your candidates

2 Meet your candidates

Use to find out what events your candidates are going to, so you can talk to them in person, or list events you know they will be attending if we don't already have them in our database.

Find an event

3 Read your
candidates' CVs

Use MPCV to read the CV of your candidates, or ask them to make it public so you can decide if you should give them a job.

Read their CVs

4 Read the press about
your candidates or area

Election Mentions presents press articles that we think are relevant in an attractive and simple list, facilitating further research, and ultimately helping to inform your vote. You can also add articles you find for other people to read.
