THE PROBLEM

 

When it comes to elections it can be so hard to find out who the candidates are that you can vote for.

This means that so many people either don’t vote or, if they do, find it difficult to determine who is the candidate who most represents their views.

The UK's local elections took place on 3rd May 2018.

 
 
 

THE SOLUTION

 

The amazing people at Democracy Club have an online candidate database that aims to provide the details of every single candidate running in the 2018 UK local elections.

They not only aim to include the names of all the candidates, but also the candidates’ social media links and their statement to voters. This statement from the candidate details why voters should elect them; increasing information around elections.

Applications are now closed.
