Ben Wallace election leaflet uploaded to The Straight ChoiceElection leaflets are dive bombing through letter boxes all over Preston as the general election looms close, but who keeps an eye on this publicity?

The Straight Choice is a website that allows you to upload leaflets that come through your door. It can pick up subtle changes on what the parties are promoting and creates a record of what candidate’s are saying.

Here’s what has been coming through the door in Preston constituencies:

South Ribble


Wyre and Preston North


Errr, nothing? No one has uploaded any leaflets for the Preston constituency. If you’ve had one through your letterbox, snap a photo and you can upload it via The Straight Choice.
