dc.description.abstractThe use of information and communication technologies (ICT) in the political sphere is nowadays a key aspect for running electoral campaigns. Thus, our work addresses the influence of ICT and candidate practices during electoral campaigns. Our approach is based in the collection of data produced by political candidates so that experts can analyse them through an analytics processes. Accordingly, this paper presents results concerning three of the data collections life cycle phases: collection, cleaning, and storage. The result is a data collection ready to be analysed for different purposes. The paper also describes our experimental validation for comparing political campaigns behaviour in France and the United Kingdom during the European elections in 2014.
