Stand For The City

All-out elections for the Court of Common Council will be taking place in March next year. The timetable for these elections can be found on the City Corporation website:

The deadline to be on the Ward List, the simplest way to qualify to be a candidate for Common Council, is on 16 December. If you work in the City, please visit to request a vote at your organisation and we will follow up with you. If you are a resident, please email to be sent a registration form.

Please also see below an invitation to an informal reception on 25 November for those interested in standing for election next year, where you can find out a little more about the City Corporation, the role of our elected members, and the process of election. We would be delighted if you were able to attend.
