The Straight Choice
The Straight Choice is an real-time election leaflet project. Their ambition is to create a live visualization of the flood of party political leaflets as they are delivered across the country during an election campaign. If you have recently received any election leaflets through your door you can help by photographing or scanning them and uploading the images to their server.
Content and aims of this website
This website was set up to create a digital archive of the ephemera - leaflets, posters, postcards & newsletters - produced by candidates and political parties contesting any British elections.
We hope that the creation of this digital archive will significantly improve the accessibility and usability of the materials held on this website, to students and researchers of political and governmental science, politicians and civil servants, journalists and general public.
As well as digital reproductions of the original materials, we made available - for the first time on one website - the results of all British Parliamentary by-elections held since the 1945 General Election.
Help us to improve the content of this website
The creators of this website are keen to extend its coverage wherever possible. Anyone who has copies of or access to any literature from any election that is not currently available on this website and is willing to provide us with original material, or digital images of original material, is encouraged to email us at: by-elections.
We have also teamed up with The Straight Choice project so that anyone can now add election leaflets direct to this internet archive project.
