Ever thought of standing for election?
This is a call for candidates to stand for the Green Party at the 2023 elections to councils in Oxfordshire.
Following our successes in the 2022 elections, we now have 3 Green councillors on Oxfordshire County Council, 17 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 2023 there are council elections in Cherwell District (north Oxfordshire), West Oxfordshire and across South Oxfordshire and the Vale.
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
