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

Nomination period deadline dates will be published before an election is due to take place. Nomination papers are available to download from the Electoral Commission website (external link).

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.

Further information

If you are interested in being a candidate, please email elections@haringey.gov.uk to be added to the mailing list.

There are no scheduled elections in Haringey in 2023, however, 2 by-elections have been held:

Thursday 2 May 2024Mayor of London and London Assembly elections
Thursday 7 May 2026Local Council Elections

Next general election

The date of the next general election has not yet been announced.

Following the repeal of the Fixed-term Parliaments Act 2011, the new Dissolution and Calling of Parliament Act 2022 gives the latest date parliament can dissolve as “the beginning of the day that is the fifth anniversary of the day on which it first met”.

The current government first met on 17 December 2019, so the fifth anniversary of that date is 17 December 2024. The election will need to be held 25 working days after that date - this would be January 2025.
