Wikia doesn't allow encyclopedias on this server. So what we're doing instead is collecting information about future elections, candidates and important issues. Once an election is over, the information should be copied to Wikipedia for the community to hash over.
The difference is subtle. One main difference is that it doesn't matter how small the district is, all candidates are welcome. Wikipedia deletes articles about low level candidates that are "not notable" to a global audience. We won't. Thinking of this site as the world's largest, most complete voter's guide may be useful.
