You possibly already know this but here it is again:
As of 6 November, MPs have lost their status and are now prospective parliamentary candidates campaigning alongside others for re-election. According to Electoral Commission rules, nomination papers must be submitted by all prospective candidates before 4pm on the 19th working day before the election – in this case that means Friday 15 November.
A list of the candidates who are standing across all 650 constituencies will be published after this date – known as the ‘Statement of Persons Nominated’.
The candidates will be posted to all local authority websites and on notice boards in your area after the deadline for nominations has passed – around mid-November.
You can go online, to the Electoral Commission website, where all the official election information for your area can be found.
After the list of candidates has been finalised, you can enter your postcode and be told the names of those running in your area.
Can I find out before the ‘Statement of Persons Nominated’ is published?
The independent website Who Can I Vote For? contains information about candidates who have already publicly put their hats in the ring.
All you have to do to find out who they are is type in your postcode and be shown the candidates for you constituency. The website warns: ‘This election will be held on Thursday, 12 December, 2019.
