Stand as a Green Party candidate for elections

We welcome people with the passion to want to help communities in Waltham Forest and Redbridge. The Green Party have been successful in elections throughout the country, and we'd love to add to that.

What does it take to be a councillor?

If you're interested in standing as a councillor, it requires a sustained period of activity to build up a name for yourself locally and a reputation that you can get things done. As a Green Party candidate the local party would do what they can to support you in this, but would expect a certain level of commitment in return.

What if you just want to give others the chance to vote Green?

In places where a Green candidate is unlikely to win, through lack of resources, it is usually beneficial to stand anyway. This is known as a paper candidate. Paper candidates are expected to do very little. They need only agree to put their name on the ballot sheet. Nominations can be collected by members, and any queries you receive can be directed to the media team.

Remember, if nobody is standing for the Greens in your area then you can't vote Green either!

Under 30?

For members and supporters under 30, you could get involved in the 30 under 30 programme that Young Geens organise. They also run training sessions to encourage more young Green members to stand. More information can be found on their website.
