Election guidance with Vote Match

Elections throw up manifestos and pledges, speeches and leaflets from a spectrum of parties, inundating us with a massive amount of information that is hard to compare.

Votematch goes some way to help steer you through it acting as an “independent source of information about the differences between political parties”, something I found helpful for the European elections.

Obviously the accuracy or usefulness of the outcome depends on what has been input, but as a tool for laying out and guiding you through who stands for what, and being open about how it reaches its conclusions, I like this. The UX and visual design leave a little to be desired, but the concept is good.
