Local elections - 7 May 2020

Assuming they don't cancel them because of coronavirus, there will be local elections in many areas on 7 May.

Please check on your local council website to see if there's an election where you live and get in touch if you'd like to stand as a YPP candidate.

There's a bit of form filling involved, which is like anything else in life, tricky the first time and pretty easy the next time.

The good news is, you don't have to pay anything to get on the ballot paper, and it's all good practice. We have found - despite doing no leafletting or campaigning whatsoever - that the number of votes you get creeps up every time you stand, which is good for morale, if nothing else.
