UK General Election 2024 candidate database

On 5th June, we launched a candidate database for the upcoming UK General Election. We’ll keep this page updated with new information since the database will be developed continuously until the election.

You will be able to add it to your email-to-target and tweet-to-target pages as “UK / English : Westminster MP Candidates 2024“. Please contact us if you don’t see the database. If you see any candidates missing, it will most likely be because we do not have a valid email address for them, but if you have any valid data please do send it through to us to look at.

You can see a demo of it here if you want to test individual postcodes.

Current status as of 13th June 2024

  • Total number of emailable candidates: 3,063 (compared with 3.031 on 12th June)

  • X/Twitter handles: 2,050 (compared with 2,030 on 12th June)

  • All constituencies have at least 2 candidates. 2 constituencies have 2, 39 have 3, 185 have 4, 348 have 5, and 76 have 6 or more. For a breakdown per constituency, see below

  • There are still candidate names from the UK main parties which do not have available email addresses. We will add to database as they are sourced and verified

  • A few candidates opted-out and so are not in the database

FAQs

When will the database be available?

The database is now available as of 5th June. Please contact us if you don’t see the database and would like to use it.

How can I use the candidate database?

You can use the database in an email-to-target, X/Tweet to Target and via the Political Broadcast tool.

Which parties will be included?

You can see a party breakdown above. For Alba, The Workers Party and SDP we are only showing high profile candidates.

Can I filter or change messages for different parties?

You can filter out any of these parties so they do not appear as candidates for your supporters to email in your page’s Target Settings (accessed via the admin screen – cog icon).

candidate-party-filterpng.png

You can also add alternative messages in your Target Block to vary your default messages per party or candidate.

How often will the database be updated?

We will be updating the database daily once released.

I think there’s something missing in the database – what do I do?

We are only able to add candidates with a validated email address, but if you have any comments on the data once available, or believe something is missing, please let our Support team know. 

Why do some supporters get auto-responses from http://parliament.uk addresses?

Some candidates, who were MPs and are standing in the same constituency, have redirects set up. In these cases, emails sent to campaign addresses are redirected and supporters will receive a response from that email address instead.

What else can I do to prepare? Set up a custom envelope!

You must have a custom envelope ready to ensure deliverability of emails to candidates.

Some other tips are:

Get content ready

  • Create and write your email-to-target pages now. You can use the existing Westminster MP database for testing, and switch to the candidate database as soon as it’s launched.

  • Include thank you emails, thank you pages, social content, and chained pages such as post action fundraising asks in your content preparation.

  • Create and test broadcast emails and automations so you are ready to go.

Get data ready

  • Engage inactive supporters to confirm their interest in receiving emails. Conducting an email campaign targeted at those who haven’t responded in a while can help keep your database active. Place those that do not respond in a Profile and consider excluding them from all or the majority of your email communications.

  • Check that your supporter data is accurate and clean if necessary.

  • Reference data enhances the emails sent to targets – adding constituency-level statistics to email content can make them more powerful. The data can be made beforehand.

  • Turn on political data mapping so that you have constituency data to hand at a supporter level.

  • Use this data mapping to identify supporter hotspots – perhaps there are some constituencies where you can create localised email-to-target actions or broadcast emails just for your supporters in that area. Customised messages lead to increased engagement.

Prepare your Technical Setup

  • Are you still using Email Classic? Marketing Tools is a much improved email builder and makes it easier to prepare and send emails, with additional features such as conditional blocks, making your election campaigning easier.

  • Ensure your sending email domains are authenticated.

  • Ensure your Custom Envelope is set up to ensure good delivery of target emails.

Get creative

While you work to get your content set up and finalised, and your data ready to go, you can also keep your supporters engaged via surveys, ecards, data captures, petitions or pre-election fundraisers. If you build up momentum now using the software your supporters are more likely to engage with your campaign actions when they are released.
