Release data set of candidates standing at election as soon as possible

Data sets of candidates standing at election at the general election were released as bad open data, with to little info and to close to the election day.

All information about a candidate that can be publically revealed should be an open data set, as soon as the submission is accepted.

Why the contribution is important

Many groups are interested in researching and questioning those standing. Many people want a quick and simple way to look up who is standing on their seat. This base data set can go on to power many other democracy sites. At the general election Democracy Club ran https://yournextmp.com/ and this was used by many other sites, showing the power of this data.
