Subject: Parish Elections 7 May 2015
Could I please ask you to make the information provided in this email available to prospective candidates for the Parish elections on 7 May 2015.
Please find attached a time table of proceedings and a full pack of nomination papers which includes a form to request the electoral register.
Candidates are advised to read the guidance and resources that are available on the Electoral Commissions website.
Could you please note that The Electoral Commission have updated their guidance for candidates and agents at local government elections in England and Wales and as a consequence we will be asking that nomination papers, consents to nomination and notices of withdrawal must be delivered in person.
The nomination period (the time when the nomination papers can be handed in) is:
- Receipt of nominations start: 10am Friday 27 March 2015
- Receipt of nomination ends: 4pm on Thursday 9 April 2015
- 10am to 4pm Monday to Friday (excluding Bank Holidays) for informal checking and formal submission
An appointment should be made for final checking and deposit of your nomination papers, so please contact the Electoral Services team on 01256 845355 prior to your visit. When making your appointment, please allow sufficient time for you to get signatures on a new form, should the submitted form be found to be invalid. Please note that appointments should be made before the last day for submission, as experience has shown that it leaves insufficient time for candidates/agents to correct invalid nomination papers.
Could you please remind all candidates that they are responsible for managing their election spending. They must complete a spending return and declaration and submit them to the Returning Officer within 28 calendar days after the day of the election. They should do this even if the election is uncontested or their spending return is nil. For further guidance see Part 3 – Spending forms and notices.
If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact me.
