Guide to Covering the General Election for Community Journalists

By Matt Abbott | 19th Apr 2017

In 2015, The Centre for Community Journalism joined forces with the Wales Governance Centre to produce a guide to covering the General Election. We hoped it would provide hyperlocal journalists with skills, tips and advice on how to report on the 2015 General Election in their communities. We had great feedback from within the network and without. After the announcement yesterday (18th April), that we were once again heading to the polls, we decided to make the guide available again. If you have a Scribd account, you can access the document here, otherwise, you can view the complete guide below.


This document was produced to support hyperlocal and community publishers in preparation for the 2015 General Election. The dates are obviously no longer applicable. Nor are the candidate lists, however, some candidates will no doubt be fighting to retain their seats.
