How to stand as a candidate

If you want to become a councillor, you must stand as a candidate and be elected at a local council election.

Standing as a member of a political party

If you wish to stand as a candidate for a political party at the council elections, you must be a member of their local party. You must contact the local party for information on how to join their organisation and how they select members of their party to be candidates at an election.

Standing as an independent candidate

If you do not want to represent a political party, you can stand as an independent candidate. For guidance on being an independent councillor, please contact the Local Government Association Independent Group at Independent.GroupLGA@local.gov.uk or phone 020 7664 3224.

Nomination period

To become an election candidate, you have to complete and submit a nomination paper to the Returning Officer during the nomination period of the election. You will need to find 2 people, 1 to propose you (a nomination) and the other to second the nomination. You will also need to find a further 8 people to act as assentors to your nomination (ie they agree that you would be a suitable candidate and are prepared to sign a document to confirm this).

See the election timetable for the 2022 Haringey Council elections for deadline dates. Nomination papers for the 2022 council elections will be available to download from this website in February 2022.

After nominations have closed all validly nominated candidates will be invited to a meeting where they will receive more specific details about the election, such as arrangements for postal vote opening, polling day and the count.
