This is a call for candidates to stand for the Green Party at the 2024 elections to councils in Oxfordshire.
Following our successes in the 2021, 2022 and 2023 elections, we now have 3 Green councillors on Oxfordshire County Council, 24 district councillors and many parish and town councillors. They are getting things done, in administration in South Oxfordshire, West Oxfordshire and Oxfordshire County and in opposition in Oxford, Cherwell and the Vale, holding the big parties to account.
We need more Green councillors in Oxfordshire. Could you follow in the footsteps of our Green Party councillors, and stand for election? You could improve the quality of our councils by representing the people and views that the governing parties ignore.
In 2024 there are council elections in Oxford City, Cherwell District (north Oxfordshire), and West Oxfordshire.
If you are at all interested in standing as a candidate, or helping organise a campaign for a candidate, please complete the form below, and the Elections Committee will get back to you with more details.
If you want any more information on what is involved in standing as candidate, please contact the Elections Co-ordinator, David Newman.
We are looking for both target candidates, who will work hard to win in this election, and non-target candidates who need to do as little as getting on the ballot paper and our website so that people can vote everywhere for a Green Party candidate. There are also a few places where a development candidate could build support over time to win a later election.Become a volunteer
Green councillors in Oxfordshire told us their stories in two Meet a Green Councillor events this July. They told us how they got interested and elected and then their experiences as local councillors. Take a look at the videos. Would you like to stand for election? Or could you assist a councillor with the wonderful work they are doing?
