Collect Information about 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 for May 2021. These will be among the largest and most complex elections in UK history, so we’ll need plenty of volunteers!

Our website allows you to add candidates and if possible, their photos, email addresses or social media accounts, for any of the May 2021 elections.

Local newspapers, 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 their candidates.

We’d like to help more people learn about relevant hustings events for the 6 May elections.

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

We’ll be displaying these on

Find contact details and websites for political parties' local branches

Time required: Ten 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.
