Once you have decided you want to stand as a candidate you need to understand the process, both the legal aspects and what the individual parties do. Here we list the basics as well as how to connect to each of the parties.
First start by reading the official Parliamentary Guide to standing in an election. "How can I stand?" The next thing is to find your local part and make contact about attending a local meeting.
If you are unsure which party you should be in, try this quiz. (More centred on UK parties than the devolved nations.) Use the links below to contact the party direct.
