Collect Information about 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.

We need your help to gather the names and contact details of the candidates for May 2021. These will be among the largest and most complex elections in UK history, so we’ll need plenty of volunteers!

Our website allows you to add candidates and if possible, their photos, email addresses or social media accounts, for any of the May 2021 elections.

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