The Returning Officer for Waverley Borough Council will be holding a briefing for election agents and those standing for election in the 2 May borough and parish council elections.
The event will explain the nominations process and provide important information about standing for election.
Election agents and independent candidates who are considering standing for election are welcome to attend. Candidates who have an election agent who is not able to attend are also welcome.
The briefing will be held on Thursday 7 February at 6.30pm at Waverley Borough Council, Council Offices, The Burys, Godalming, GU7 1HR.
Information will be provided on how the nominations process will be conducted, the paperwork that candidates are required to complete and legislative changes to the nominations process.
Returning Officer Tom Horwood said: "There are lots of forms and regulations around standing for election, and some of the rules have changed since last time. It's important that candidates get them right and our elections team can help. This briefing will give candidates and agents the information they need to avoid being accidentally excluded due to errors in their paperwork."
Those wishing to attend should register their interest as soon as possible by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or phoning Waverley Borough Council’s elections team on 01483 523116.
