Stand for Election

Is this the year you decide to make a difference? Being a candidate is the Cotswolds is a great way to bring change to your local area and the UK. If you are passionate about your community, we need people like you.

We welcome applications from people from all walks of life: there is no such thing as a typical Lib Dem MP or councillor. We want you to bring your unique background and talents to the Party!

There are three tiers of local government in the Cotswolds. They are the Gloucestershire County Council, Cotswold District Council and your local Town or Parish Council. We're always looking for candidates for all tiers. You might even be interested in standing for Parliament.

To see if this might be the right move for you, the Local Government Association has a handy guide on the role of a councillor, and a booklet about standing for election (link downloads PDF).

Represent your community and be the change you want to see. Learn more and apply below.
