Find contact details and websites for political parties' local branches

Time required: Five minutes

People are looking online for information about their election candidates. This is sometimes hard to find, particularly at local elections.

Typically, there is more information available about local branches of political parties, which nominate most of the candidates.

So please help us complete this spreadsheet with information on those branches!

We’ll add this information to our candidate pages, so as to help people learn more before they vote.
