Elections Comes To MPdata+

My UK  Member of Parliament  application MPdata+ has been  updated  with upcoming elections in your area.

A new window opens with the date time and what type of election it is, with buttons for more information which takes you to Who Can I Vote For site, the other button downloads the .ics file.

The data comes from Who Can I Vote For site in a .ics file.

This is my first .ics file conversation so I’m interested in locations that break the new feature.
