Democracy Club SoPN Party
The state doesn’t provide this. We need such a database to build tools to help voters.
The database is crowdsourced from thousands of users. Those users can find information on candidates from twitter, facebook, local news, candidates themselves.
Ultimately, the data needs to be checked against the official Statements of Persons Nominated: SoPNs. This requires a good amount of human help! That's where you come in.
We need your help check who's standing for local election in Northern Ireland, what ward, council area and party they're standing for, and what else would be useful to know about the candidates.
To make it a bit more sociable / competitive / fun, we get people together in a room to go through as many as possible. Bring along your laptop, and we'll provide the food and drinks.
Please be aware that you may be charged if you don't attend an event you have registered for - even in the case of free to access events. Full details on our cancellation policy:
