East Surrey Conservatives are currently searching for candidates to stand in the 2022 Local Elections. We are also always looking out for people interested in representing their communities as by-elections inevitably occur from time to time.
There are no requirements for being a Council candidate other than a desire to represent your area and stand up for local people. Clearly a broad sympathy with Conservative Party policy and values is needed but you do not have to be a member already or have any history with the party. Previous membership of another party is not necessarily a bar to standing for us.
You’ll get support from a vibrant Association and activist team in your area and comprehensive training from experienced campaigners and Councillors. And of course, our local MP Claire Coutinho, your fellow candidates and our local Councillors will support you throughout the campaign.
Our selection procedure has multiple stages, but the first stage is to fill out an application form. If you would like to discuss the possibility of candidacy and what it entails or to send us your application form, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to set up an informal chat.
