- Upload a headshot photograph
- Add any web or social media links
Our WhoCanIVoteFor.co.uk site gets all its traffic in a rush from around 6pm Wednesday to around 9pm Thursday. Last year, the website had 100,000 users — statistically, that’s quite a lot in your area. Voters all leave the same feedback: they want to know ‘where you stand’. So before you do that last leaflet drop, take ten minutes to update your page — you won’t even get chased by a dog while doing it.
If you’re a democracy womble…
Help us clear up the mess of election information! We can still make the database more useful — there are still twitters, facebooks, websites out there… Try the prioritised tasks on the crowdsourcer homepage.
Or, test out WhoCanIVoteFor.co.uk on friends, unsuspecting colleagues, surprised neighbours — anyone you can find! Ask them what they think and then let us know! Here’s a handy guide to asking someone what they think about the site.
If you’re a dog…
Prepare your best side, and plan to use the hashtag #dogsatpollingstations. Enjoy going viral.
