Advice Surgeries for candidates and agents

The Electoral Commission are offering 15-minute appointments with an expert advisor at the Commission to discuss specific issues relating to the spending and donation laws, and to answer any queries candidates and agents might have. Virtual appointments will be available using Microsoft Teams throughout the following days, on a first come, first served basis.

Before the election these will be held on: Thursday 18 April, Thursday 25 April, and Friday 26 April.

Please feel free to share this information with those standing for election in your area. To request an appointment, candidates and agents should complete our form and can contact Stuart Butler on sbutler@electoralcommission.org.uk if they have any further questions about the advice surgeries.
