Guidance for Voters on Election Candidates

Hello Forum,

I wonder if one could direct many of the people like myself with full information to know their candidates better before we go out voting.
I do wonder if a candidate's brief CV is available at a website from something like praja, where in all the essential details is available for the voters. A brief description of the candidate, their education background and what they have achieved( say national/regional awards) in what specific lines, their political agenda, which constituency hey are representing, what they are trying to promise and if they were in reign before, what they achieved then? any warnings, any convictions, reprimands, assets and general image etc...

Please guide if there is already a site which describes everything like this.

The campaigning messages from the candidate itself can be  lot of vote-grabbing hoaxes, and hence it would really mean a lot to have good info from a reliable source.

Thanks in advance
