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.

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.

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!

Tell us about a by-election

Time required: Five minutes

We want to help people keep abreast of every election in their area. We have some clever robots that help us build the Every Election database, but they’re not perfect!

If you spot a by-election that we’re not covering, please add it to the database, or let us know!

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.
