Elections information

Make all election information available in machine readable format.

Currently they are PDFs, of pictures, of printed Word documents.

As a starting point I recommend tabular data in CSV format.

Why the contribution is important

Becaue otherwise someone has to type it back in, ie https://yournextmp.com/constituency/65931/birmingham-edgbaston/#candidates

    This is an interesting idea.

    For reference our Customer Knowledge team have been doing some work in this area and have produced several dashboards in tableau using elections data. So we understand that having this data in a machine readable format would be useful.

    These dashboards are available to everybody and can be accessed here:
