Election Tech Handbook

Hey folks,

If you’re interested in using your tech skills to get involved in the upcoming election, we’ve made the Election Tech Handbook, a crowdsourced project to bring together all the useful tools, data and resources you’ll need.

Some current highlights:

Democracy Club has made an election timetable generator: put in your expected election date and it gives you all the other critical dates (voter registration deadline, candidate announcement, etc).

WhoTargetsMe is tracking who is spending what on political facebook ads each day; follow via their twitter feed and help out by installing their browser extension.

Jon Worth’s amazing Brexit Flowcharts help cut through all the constitutional complexity.

Do please take a look and add anything that might be useful to people, even if it’s your own commercial product, or something you’ve heard of that you didn’t make yourself: https://electiontechhandbook.uk

Also, if you happen to be London based, we’re hosting a meetup tomorrow night at Newspeak House on everything to do with technology and elections. It’ll be some short lightning talks, followed by networking: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/election-tech-meetup-tickets-71643568843
