Democracy needs you! Join thousands of people helping to make democracy better by completing small quests.

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.

It’s the most productive time of the year…

Website changes, new donors, and lots of draft documents for your comments! Plus... what are we going to do if there’s another referendum?

The One Where It’s Nearly December

Another mini-blog while we work on the candidates crowdsourcer, API documentation and finishing a report into people underrepresented in the elections process. But a bonus section on crowdfunding!

The Long Black Friday

It’s a quiet fridayblog today as we’re heads down Getting On With Things. But there's still room to ask for your help with some candidates, to celebrate the 100 year anniversary of women standing for parliament and to raise a new fundraising idea.
