This page shows you how long you have until nominations close, responsibilities of the role you are putting yourself foward for and additional information from us (make sure to click "show" on the "Responsibilities" and "Additional Information" headings.) You need to provide your name as you would like it to appear on the ballot paper and your manifesto. You also have the option to provide a photo of yourself. 

For your manifesto, we ask that you give up to three commitments of what you would work on if you were elected.

You will then receive an email telling you whether we have accepted or rejected your nomination. (If it has been rejected, we will give you a reason why.)
