Know what is needed for this General Election

Published 01/02/2010

Some of your readers may be thinking of getting involved in this year's UK Parliamentary General Election, whether by standing for election themselves, acting as an agent for a local candidate or even setting up a new political party.

Others may be involved with a group or organisation that is planning to campaign on behalf of a party or candidate.

We want to ensure that everyone who gets involved knows the rules that they need to follow.

Some of these rules have changed recently and I would encourage anyone who is thinking of getting involved to visit our website, www.electoralcommission .org.uk, to make sure they know what their responsibilities are.
