How do I get elected?

You can choose to stand for election as an  independent candidate or as a party political candidate.

The Electoral Commission website provides  information about elections in England, including  guidance for potential candidates.

If you want to represent a political party you will  need to contact your local branch directly to discuss  becoming a candidate.
