Guildford Conservatives is currently looking for candidates for every area of the Constituency ahead of Borough Council elections in 2023. We are also always looking out for people interested in representing their communities as by-elections inevitably occur from time to time.
There are no requirements for being a Council candidate other than a desire to represent your area and stand up for local people. If you are already involved in the community so much the better but we want to give communities the best possible voice in the Council. Clearly a broad sympathy with Conservative Party policy and values is needed but you do not have to be a member already or have any history with the party. Previous membership of another party is not necessarily a bar to standing for us.
Our selection procedure has multiple stages but the first stage is to fill out an application form below. This form is for new applicants, not sitting Councillors.
If you would like to discuss the possibility of candidacy and what it entails, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to set up an informal chat.
