Spread the word about the local elections!

Time required: Five minutes

We need to get the word out about the local elections on 2 May!

You can find out whether you have elections and, if so, who your candidates are at WhoCanIVoteFor.co.uk.

Please share the website with your friends, family and community groups. A facebook share can go a long way!

You can also find out where to vote via WhereDoIVote.co.uk.

Again, tell everyone you know!

Help build the free database of 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. This powers websites like WhoCanIVoteFor.co.uk and several other voter information services.

We need your help to gather more information on the candidates for the local elections on 2 May 2019.

Check out the list of upcoming elections here and help add candidates’ photos, email addresses or social media accounts.

When searching for more information on candidates, local political party websites, Facebook and Twitter are a good place to start!

Help us find out about hustings events

Time required: Five minutes

‘Hustings’ are debates between election candidates. They are a great opportunity for voters to hear from and meet their candidates.

We’d like to help more people learn about hustings events in their area.

So we need a list of them.

Help us collate information on hustings in this spreadsheet — you can try searching online to find new ones.

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.

Write us a Wikipedia page!

Time required: Less than an hour

Every good organisation deserves a Wikipedia page.

Fancy creating us one?

Our website and blog won’t be acceptable references for Wikipedia. But you can find a list of external links of people who’ve written about us on our about page.

You can read more about creating Wikipedia pages here.
