With Britain now going to the polls on June 8 for the snap general election, we will be offering a comprehensive service that gives customers all the content they require to cover and monitor this historic event.
GE2017 package gives you access to all of PA’s coverage of the UK general election. By taking access to this package you will also receive coverage of the council and mayoral elections taking place on 4th May – which will no doubt provide fascinating insights and trends in the build-up.
PA offers the election service you'd expect from the UK's national news agency: fast, fair and accurate coverage direct from the campaign trail. This year, our GE2017 package gives you access to all of PA’s general election content including editorial, video, graphics and results. As the UK’s leading provider of election services, you can be confident that wherever you use our content, PA’s multimedia assets can power your coverage.
PA will have reporters on the campaign buses for the Conservatives, Labour and Liberal Democrats, so you can expect all the latest news in the build-up direct from the campaign trail. We will have comprehensive coverage on the day covering all the key moments, as well as the results as they happen through the night. A range of feature content is planned on a daily and one-off basis including explainers, profiles, quotes of the day, manifestos at-a-glance and five things we’ve learned.
We will be producing a wide range of clear and innovative graphics for the general election as well as the mayoral and local elections. Our graphics team are expert designers and data journalists, interpreting the key stories and distilling them into clear, easy-to-digest infographics. Graphics will include:
GE2017 grants you access to our video portal which will contain all of our coverage from nominations through to post-election reactions. This includes regular coverage of all three major parties, 60 second-wraps as well as ad-hoc video with the latest developments. All our video is delivered quickly and available in 1080p as either newsroom-ready rough cuts or consumer-ready packages.
PA will once again be offering its detailed data service for the general election. Our elections data includes the full set of nominations for all constituencies pre-election, short news items for selected key constituencies during the election, results rushes, the full results and Combined State of Parties statistics.
