Election 2021 - Information for candidates in upcoming elections

Book today to submit your nomination paper - please don't attend without an appointment
If you’re looking to put yourself forward as a candidate in the upcoming local unitary elections and town and parish council elections, Wiltshire Council have created a booking system for you to make an appointment with our elections team to submit your nomination forms.

The booking system is there to help safely manage the number of nominations received and comply with COVID-19 guidance, including social distancing.

There has been a sharp rise in prospective candidates turning up without an appointment. The booking system is there for the safety of you and staff to ensure there are not too many people in the building at any one time so please can we remind you of the importance of booking in advance. If you do turn up without an appointment, it's very likely you will have a long wait until we're able to see you. Also, we cannot guarantee that you will be seen at all as those who have made an appointment will be seen first and prioritised for checking and submitting nomination papers.

Please ensure you make an appointment prior to visiting the team. 
The deadline to receive nomination papers is 8 April at 4pm.
