Motivation[edit]

Similarly to Democracy Club ID (P6465), Democracy Club's candidate database includes unique identifiers for all UK elections (currently >1200 according to the API. Most local elections will have a Wikipedia page (eg see the 2018 elections category), and as such an associated Wikidata item. jacksonj04 (talk) 16:19, 28 March 2019 (UTC)

Discussion[edit]

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support This is great - for some reason I had it in my head that we couldn't link to DC for most elections because they were broken up by constituency/ward. Seems I was wrong :-) Being able to use overall links like this neatly solves that problem, and it'll be very handy. Andrew Gray (talk) 18:41, 28 March 2019 (UTC)
