PLEASE NOTE: While these elections are primarily for East Sussex County Council divisions, there are also a few by-elections for Wealden District Council wards, as well as the election (postponed from 2020) of a new Sussex Police & Crime Commissioner.
We are pleased to have such a strong slate of candidates for the local elections happening in Wealden on May 6, 2021. Please scroll down and look for your division or ward below, then click on your corresponding candidate's name to learn more about them, and to access their contact information.
If you would like to help us with our campaigning, there are many ways to get involved, from delivering leaflets (always following the latest COVID-safe government guidelines) to helping on the phones to offering to put up a poster or stakeboard.
So whether you are able to volunteer for a few hours each week, or could just help out occassionally, we'd love to have you on board!
We are also very grateful to the local donors who make it possible to run these candidate campaigns. Every bit really helps, and contributions can be made via our Donations page.
