Councillor/Candidate Home Addresses
Rishi Sunak has written a letter confirming that he is taking forward a
recommendation from the Committee on Standards in Public Life Review of
Intimidation in Public Life that the Government should bring forward
legislation to remove the requirement for candidates standing as local
councillors to have their home addresses published on the ballot paper. Accordingly,
Parliament has now amended the rules that apply to local government, parish
council, and local and combined authority mayor elections, removing the
requirement that each candidate’s home address must be published during the
election process and be included on the ballot paper. The requirement for each candidate’s
qualifying address to be published during that process has also been removed
and Returning Officers and other electoral administrators should take care to
avoid disclosing such addresses during an election count. A copy of the letter can be seen here.
Committee on Standards in Public Life Ethical Standards Review

ERNLLCA will be contacting member councils to take their views about the elements of the report which impact on our sector.
