Get an informal check on your nomination paper before you submit it officially
Send your nomination paper via email to firstname.lastname@example.org Be aware there is personal data on the nomination paper so it needs to be password protected. Do not send the password via email. We will ring you for the password.
What to include in your nomination email for the informal check
If you are not standing as a party candidate then you only need to provide us with one nomination paper, the home address form and the consent to nomination (four pages).
If you are standing for a party then you will need to provide the emblem form and political party form as well for the informal check.
Electoral Register and absent vote lists
If you want to request the register and absent vote lists then there are forms for those as well that you will need to submit, but this can be when you actually submit your nomination paper by hand, not when doing an informal check.
The next step after the informal check
Once we have done the informal checks, we will contact you to inform you if the pack is all okay, or, if there are any amendments needed. We will provide you with a checklist with any errors, and you can then re-submit the nomination pack again for another informal check.
Make an appointment to officially submit your nomination
Appointments can only be made for an official working day (no weekends or bank holidays).
Once all is ok, then you can book an appointment with us between 10am and 4pm on the dates we can receive nomination papers - phone 01432 260107 or email us to do this.
The nomination paper must be hand-delivered to the Town Hall in St Owen Street, Hereford.
