An information session on how to become a councillor is being held as Fenland residents prepare to go to the ballot boxes later this year.

Local council elections are taking place on Thursday, May 2, to elect Fenland district councillors and town and parish councillors for the 2019-23 term.

Fenland District Council is holding a briefing event for potential candidates and agents to inform them about how to stand for election, what the legal requirements are and how the local election process works.

It is being held in the Council Chamber at Fenland Hall in County Road, March, on Thursday, February 28, at 6.30pm.

Candidates do not have to be a member of a political party.

A Council spokesman said: “Becoming a councillor is a great way to make a direct and positive impact on the daily lives of people in your community.

“In Fenland, councillors play a vital role in shaping the future of their local communities and representing local residents. We want to welcome anyone interested in standing for election to find out more by attending this important briefing.”

Nomination packs, including forms and other essential information, will be available at the session and there will be an opportunity to ask questions about completing the forms.
