Ringwood Town Council is calling on residents passionate about their community to stand in the local elections, to be held on 2 May 2019.

What do councillors do?

Councillors are the champions of their community and give residents a voice on the decisions the Council makes.

Becoming a councillor will allow you to make a real difference in your community by engaging with residents, local groups and businesses to find out their needs; making decisions on which services and projects the Council should take forward; and getting involved locally to ensure the services are meeting the community’s needs.

Can I stand?

There are only a few rules to stand for election. You must be:

  • A British citizen, or a citizen of the Commonwealth, or the European Union
  • 18 years of age or older
  • Live in an area that is served by a local council

How can I get involved?

Contact the Town Council to find out more or visit www.nalc.gov.uk/elections.

There is also a useful booklet All About Local Councils here https://www.nalc.gov.uk/library/our-work/elections-2/2814-all-about-local-councils-2018/file

 

Local information, including nominations forms, is available from www.newforest.gov.uk/article/18798/DISTRICT-COUNCIL-ELECTIONS-2019.  Nominations can be submitted from 22nd March until the deadline of 4pm on 3rd April.
