Quests

Democracy needs you! Join thousands of people helping to make democracy better by completing small quests.

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!

So Long, Farewell.

Rose bids farewell and reflects on her three and a bit months at Democracy Club.

It's oh so quiet

We collated all the local election results! And we're having a summer event that you should come to.

Happy results Friday!

Results, election day performance, celebrity tweets and what’s next!
