Planning for Elections

This workshop is designed to prepare Clerks and Councillors for the election process, explain the rules and answer questions about the election process. The workshop will cover a range of topics including:

  • The clerk's role in elections
  • Preparing for and promoting the elections
  • Is it desirable to have a contested election?
  • The election process and timetable
  • Statutory notices and forms
  • Who can stand for election – the rules on qualification and disqualification
  • What happens after the election, once a result is declared?
  • The impact of elections on council business and how to prepare
  • Welcoming the new council – declarations and inductions
  • What to do if your council has insufficient candidates

Who should attend

Although this workshop is predominantly aimed at clerks, Councillors are equally welcome to attend
