Help us keep an eye on edits to the Candidates database
Time required: Five minutes
We run the UK’s database of election candidates. It’s crowdsourced: anyone can add information. Errors are rare and vandalism is even rarer. However, for good practice and reassurance, we keep an eye on the edits of new users and edits to prominent candidates.
If you’d like to help us to watch over the edits, please join our Slack and join the ‘candidate-edit-review’ channel. Each time a noteworthy edit is made, it’ll be flagged in this channel. Whoever gets there first can check it, and if it’s okay, use a green check mark (✅) to show that it’s been checked. If there are problems, you can discuss them in the channel.

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.
Code for democracy!
Time required: A couple of hours
Check out our github repo’s! Plenty of issues…
Hop into our Slack and ask where you can help!
Or do something else! For example…
- We run a database of election candidates for the UK. We give every candidate an ID and against that collect some details like email, social media, etc. But there’s always more to learn about candidates. Found an interesting source of information about candidates? Use our ID system to map the bits of data to a candidate. Let us know and we might be able to use it on WhoCanIVoteFor.co.uk!
