Nominations packs

Nomination forms must be submitted by hand and we will be offering appointments between the hours of 9am and 5pm to deliver your nomination form to our West Suffolk House office in Bury St Edmunds. To book an appointment please email elections@westsuffolk.gov.uk with details of the date and time that you would like to attend. We will confirm your appointment by email and will include information regarding the measures that will be in place to ensure the nominations can be delivered safely.

Informal checks on nomination papers ahead of your appointment, can be undertaken, by scanning and emailing your nomination pack to elections@westsuffolk.gov.uk. This will help to ensure any issues or corrections required are resolved before the paper is formally delivered. This service will not be available any earlier than 22 March. We will aim to respond to any of these requests by the end of the next working day.
