A number of websites exist to help you in your decision making. Here are a few examples:

Your Next MP lists MPs and contact details 

Vote Match 2010 asks you which policies you support under a number of topics, and then tells you how best your support matches party policies. Can give unexpected results.

Democracy Club has asked people to put forward local questions, and these are now being submitted to the candidates (currently only UKIP has answered), and the answers will be published online.

The Straight Choice shows leaflets that the electorate have scanned in with their postcode so you can see leaflets you may have missed and for neighbouring constituencies.

Vote for Democracy, Unlock Democracy's electoral website, discusses voting reform, as does Power 2010. Index on Censorship held a debate on libel reform.

Election Champion shows you billboard adverts from around the country that people have scanned in

Question Your Candidates lists election hustings

My Gay Vote shows the parties' policies on LGBT matters.

The British Humanist Association has published a General Election Manifesto (pdf) that summarises their policies, as have Amnesty, Compassion in World Farming and many other organisations.

The Political Compass won't help you decide who to vote for but is an interesting tool
