Elections to the Lok Sabha happened in India in April and May 2009. The data of various candidates could be obtained from the Election Commission of India's website. In order to track the elections and upload candidate and constituency information onto this wiki, we accessed this website and regularly downloaded the CandidateAC file from there.

This effort has resulted in several questions about the data and information systems of the Election Commission of India. Several people have reviewed this exercise and it has resulted in a case for technology reform of the entire Election Process.
