  • Cornwall Council elections

Candidates and agents / Information and nomination packs

If you wish to be a candidate at these elections please request a candidate information pack as soon as possible. You can do this by contacting any parish councillor for the area you wish to stand in. These packs contain the required forms and guidance on the election process. They will be available in the week commencing 15 March 2021.

If you prefer, you can download the nomination papers produced by the Electoral Commission that we will be using.(Please note: These papers do not include some information that will be in the packs produced by us.)

You will need to return completed nomination papers to us by hand. Details of where and when to deliver your papers will be shown in the Notice of Election that we will publish here on 22 March. (Candidates for the Police and Crime Commissioner election must contact the Elections team at Exeter City Council. The team will be leading those elections for the Devon and Cornwall Police area.)
