London Elects is the independent team that organises the Mayor of London and the London Assembly elections. This includes everything from designing and printing the ballot papers, managing the counting of votes, to delivering a public awareness campaign to tell Londoners about the election and how they can vote.
London Elects use the FactMint Researcher’s data-mining and semantic web technologies to provide its users with a powerful research tool.
Sarah Garrett, Communications Manager at London Elects, said:
“FactMint has allowed us to interrogate a huge amount of information – including years of electoral data across hundreds of wards and well as social, economic and ethnicity date and other demographic information.”
“This has given us valuable intelligence and insight that has helped inform our campaign and reach as many people as possible.”
