Who Can I Vote For?
People expect information about elections and candidates to be available online.
I am looking for information on the candidates I am supposed to be voting for on Thursday. I cannot find anything on either candidate. If they cannot be bothered to get the information out there why should I bother turning out to vote???
We are making this happen: users put in their postcode and we show them everything we know. Ideally, this information includes a statement from the candidate, their photo and contact details.
The website saw 500,000 uses at the last set of local elections. It now covers all by-elections too.
It’s powered by our election data and our crowdsourced database of candidates.
You can try it out at WhoCanIVoteFor.co.uk.
