Make sure your nomination is not invalid

Are you standing in the local elections in May?

If so, you need to be aware of a change in the guidance about nominations and the new nomination form. If you do not return the form correctly you may be disqualified.

The regulation is:

a candidate must return the entire consent to nomination form which includes copies of the relevant legislation by the close of nominations for their nomination to be valid [my emphasis]

So when you return your nomination form you must send back the 5 pages of legislation, as well as the consent form.

ALDC thinks it is a rather silly requirement, but warns all candidates and agents to heed their advice. All nominations must be submitted by noon on Friday April 5th.

You can download the latest version of the nomination pack from the Electoral Commission.
