Where can I find out who is standing for election and get information on candidates?

For most elections there is no official source of information on candidates, so you should visit candidate websites, party websites, or write to the party or candidate.

Your local elections office may also be able to provide you with information on who is standing for election in your area.

Find your local elections office on our About My Vote site by entering your post code in the 'Your local area' box

In Northern Ireland, a list of nominated candidates is available on the Electoral Office website.
