The Election's Guide for Brazil's 2016 Elections was a big project, holding more than 500 thousand profile pages for every candidate in all over the 5576 brazilian cities. In Curitiba, it had a special feature, to help the readers to find out the best candidate (for mayor and councilmen) selecting them by their opinions regarding a few municipal themes.

What makes this project innovative? What was its impact?

How does your candidate think? This is a very hard question to answer. A team in newsroom managed to interview more than 700 people running for City Council, besides the 9 candidates for City Hall. The tool lets you give your opinion on the same questions they answered, and see who thinks similarly, so you could find the right candidate.
