electionleaflets.org is an archive of, well, election leaflets — the kind distributed by politicians to householders, in the days and weeks before local or national elections, and, in the case of 5 May this year, a referendum.

It allows people to see what politicians and their parties are saying, locally and in comparable areas elsewhere, and will be a valuable resource for future historians.

Leaflets are scanned or photographed (a decent mobile phone pic will do) and uploaded by members of the public.

Here are the (very few!) leaflets uploaded for Birmingham Northfield constituency covering Kings Norton, Longbridge, Northfield and Weoley wards.

Can you help, by uploading any election leaflets you have received (regardless of the party)? The process is simple, and the instructions are clear.
