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 by-elections.

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!

Find details of prospective parliamentary candidates

Time required: Ten minutes

In the event of a snap general election, lots of people will want to know the details of the candidates pretty quickly.

Many candidates have already been selected. We can’t yet add them to Democracy Club Candidates because we don’t have the date of the next general election. But we can still get the information together in one place.

We are crowdsourcing the details of PPCs in a Google Spreadsheet.

Try searching party pages, twitter, facebook to find out who’s been chosen to stand.

P.S. Remember to add a source where you’re entering data that’s not a URL!

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.
