Parish Election Resources

Parish councils may find the following documents helpful when planning for parish elections:

  • Schedule of elections
    This shows when each Parish in the Cherwell district is due to be re-elected.
  • Request an election form
    Once a vacancy notice has been displayed, 10 electors from the parish can request an election to fill the vacancy. This form can be used for people wanting to collect signatures and request an election. Please note this form must be printed off and signed by electors.
  • Declaration of Acceptance of Office
    Each Councillor, whether elected or co-opted, must complete this form as it means they have accepted the role of Councillor.
  • Register of Interests
    Another form that must be completed by Councillors once they take office
