Sedlescombe Parish Council
Town and Parish Elections 2015
The ordinary parish elections in 2015 are being held on 7th May, when they are being combined with elections for Rother District Council’s councillors and the UK Parliamentary Election. This is the biggest election event since 1979.
All Parish and Town Councillors must stand for election. You may stand for election if you meet certain criteria set out in Part 1 of the Electoral Commission's guidance. You may, however, be disqualified for the reasons set out in the guidance.
If you are interested in standing for election, the process for doing this is very simple. Every one who wants to be included in the list of candidates for election has to fill in a nomination form and be nominated by two people. Completed nomination forms have to be handed in to Rother District Council (between 10am and 4pm each working day) starting from Monday 30th March until the close of nominations at 4pm on Thursday 9 April. Withdrawal of candidature is permitted up to 4pm on Thursday 9th April.
Then you just sit back to wait for the results.
