AS THE ELECTION date nears, we at TheJournal.ie have been adding more details to our general election 2020 candidate database. 

The database, first released last month, is available on all platforms and serves as your source of information on every single candidate across the country.

Each candidate has since been asked three questions, the answers of which are now included in the database:

  1. Why should someone vote for your?
  2. What is your number one priority for your constituency?
  3. What one thing would you like to do in your first 100 days of the new Dáil if you are elected?

Some candidates have not yet responded to the questionnaire and this is marked in their profiles. It will be updated if they respond before polling day. 

Also included in the database are pictures, biographies, contact details and social media profiles of each candidate in every constituency. 

This database is just one part of TheJournal.ie’s extensive general election coverage.
