ALDC advice: filling in and submitting nomination forms

We advise that you fill in your nomination forms at the earliest opportunity possible. You’re able to submit them from March 27 onwards and the deadline for returning them is 4pm on Wednesday 3 April.

The following paperwork needs to be completed correctly and submitted on time:

  • Nomination papers
  • Candidate’s consent to nomination
  • Candidates address form
  • Deposit (not for locals)
  • Form for the appointment of the agent
  • Delegated Nominating Officer (DNO) paperwork (for use of the party name and logo on the ballot paper)

Most Returning Officers will supply forms, but some may expect you to supply your own from the Electoral Commission’s website. You should always use the Party’s own DNO paperwork – download it.

Find more information on filling in your forms correctly.

The golden rules:

  1. Talk to your Returning Officer and find out what they will and won’t accept, and arrange a meeting for an informal check before the deadlines
  2. Get your papers submitted in time so that you can deal with any mistakes and problems
  3. If you run into serious problems, check with ALDC (ALDC members can call or email, non-members can email as part of our Election Law Helpline – [email protected] or call 0161 212 1012)

Download nomination papersincluding candidate consent to nomination and agent notification forms – ward specific nomination papers will be available from your council.

Download Certificate of Authorisation / Delegated Nominating Officer (DNO) form England – we recommend you use this version rather than the one supplied by your council.
