If you’re thinking of standing as a councillor for Worcester City Council or a parish council, you won’t want to miss an upcoming special online briefing session.
The event will give prospective candidates – and their potential agents – all the essential information they need to know about the elections.
The online briefing will be held at 6pm on Monday March 13. Would-be candidates and agents must book in advance.
The briefing will run through essentials like how to complete nomination papers, how postal votes work, the new voter ID rules and many other important matters.
There will also be a West Mercia Police officer on hand to discuss the dangers of electoral fraud.
This year’s Worcester City Council elections will take place on Thursday May 4.
Eleven City Council seats will be contested, in the Arboretum, Bedwardine, Cathedral, Claines, Nunnery, St Clement, St John, St Peter’s, St Stephen, Warndon Parish North and Warndon Parish South wards.
There are also vacancies in St Peter’s and Warndon parish councils and, depending on the number of candidates who are nominated, elections for these could be held on 4 May alongside the City Council polls.
