Polls API

API Keys

You now require a key to access this API. Version 1.0 of the API will be released very soon, and keys are now available for the new API. There are no plans to charge for access to the service, but rate limiting may come into force if required. For information on our API and to request a key for v1.0, email us at bee@opinionbee.uk

Our unique feature is the API endpoints we provide for UK polling data. We're providing this API free of charge and for any reasonable purpose, all we ask is that you say you used our API (or the data from our website) when publishing the data or any derived statistics.

The API uses JSON objects which provides data in groups which can then be used in your applications, or as a way of syndicating our content. We welcome any developers who want to make third party applicatons that use the data.

Before using the API, you should also read our Terms & Conditions.

Current API version: 0.2.5 (beta).

Global Data

We have three global data APIs; for political parties, poll types, and polling companies. These can be useful when used with the polling data, or in their own right.

Polling Data

This is the polling data for each category, such as Westminster Voting Intention, and uses our poll ID as the index for each poll. You can also link back to the individual poll page on this website using the poll link attribute.

We will be adding APIs for GB European Parliament polls in the near future.
