Local Elections are Fast Approaching!

Local elections are approaching and we will be campaigning to retain our hardworking councillors – and win more. This year there are both county council and borough council seats up for election. We have a great team of candidates who we will introduce shortly.

We are looking forward to getting out and talking to people about the local issues that concern them. Our councillors, candidates and supporters will be following the government’s guidelines for COVID-safe campaigning. Also we will wear masks when canvassing on doorsteps and when we go into blocks of flats. If you prefer not to open the door, that is completely understood.

 

If you’d like to help by delivering leaflets in one of our target areas, or displaying a ‘Vote Green’ poster in your window, please get in touch.

THE GOVERNMENT’S APPROACH TO ELECTIONS DURING COVID-19

From 8 March 2021 people will be allowed to deliver leaflets and canvass electors in relation to the elections and local referendums taking place on 6 May The number of campaigners operating together should be kept to an absolute minimum and a minimum 2 metres distance should be maintained between them at all times.
Campaigners should not enter a private home. Campaigners may speak to electors on their doorsteps, maintaining at least 2 metres distance at all times.
Campaigners should only enter premises, such as a shared hallway in a block of flats, where absolutely necessary to reach individual homes served by communal areas. Unless it is unsafe to do so, canvassing from within shared internal areas should be carried out by a single campaigner.
