Election Restrictions

Using Council property or street furniture to display election materials is not permitted. To do so would be a conflict with the prohibition on the use of Council resources for political purposes. If you see any election material displayed on Council property or street furniture, please email democraticservices@warwickshire.gov.uk

The restriction also applies to the use of Warwickshire County Council headed paper, logo and email. Councillors must not use their WCC email account for election purposes or include it in any election materials.

Using schools and community premises for election purposes is allowed but with restrictions. Candidates can use these within the electoral division where they are standing at reasonable times (or an adjacent area if no other venues are available). The candidate must use the room only for the purpose of holding public meetings to promote or procure votes in the forthcoming election.
