WhoCanIVoteFor is a simple tool which allows UK voters to see lists of candidates in upcoming elections using only their postcode.
All the candidate data ued in this site is collected by volunteers from council websites and other sources. If you wish to contribute, please visit Democracy Club Candidates.
Some information displayed on WhoCanIVoteFor is held by Democracy Club seperate from our candidates database. This includes 'extra' data and links such as political party contact details and manifestos, parish or town councils, or referendums. If you have questions or comments on any of these subjects, please get in touch using the email address below.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any feedback or bug reports, tweet us @democlub or talk to us on Facebook.
If you'd like to discuss this site or any other project relating to elections in the UK, we'd suggest that you post to the Democracy Club Slack.
This site was developed by Democracy Club, specifically Sym Roe, Joe Mitchell, Tim Green, Andy Lulham and David Miller. This site would not be possible without the help of hundreds of contributors to Democracy Club Candidates, and in turn the support of mySociety.
The data on candidates from the UK general election in 2010 is all taken from Edmund von der Burg's YourNextMP.com, with many thanks.
