Find out who is contesting in your ward

If you haven’t come across this yet, have a look, and find the names of all the candidates in your ward, and see just how many hopeful popcorn parties are vying for your votes!

You will notice that many candidates are contesting more than one ward. This is a way of trying to get as many proportional representative votes for their party as possible, but it doesn’t say much for their commitment to represent the views of our Ward. In the unlikely event of a candidate winning more than one ward, they will be obliged to resign as the Ward councillor for one of the wards they won, thus immediately not only creating a by-election in the ward they resigned from, but also leaving the electorate in that ward with nothing but empty unfulfilled promises
