If you meet the criteria you can stand for election by completing a nomination pack for the relevant election.
If an election is contested (there are more nominations than seats available), an election (poll) will then take place on a specified date for people to decide who they wish to vote for.
Nomination packs and other information for candidates will appear below as and when an election is called. If you're unable to print the forms please contact the electoral services team and we will post the forms to you.
Due to changes in the nomination arrangements and requirements because of the coronavirus pandemic, nomination forms are currently being amended and will be published here in the near future.
