Make a difference to your National Park!
This summer, elections will be taking place to elect five members to the National Park Authority Board.
You can get involved by standing as a candidate or casting your vote to help decide who makes the important decisions here in the Park. Find out more about our Board members and the role of the Board here. We’ll also keep this page updated with more information about the election process and hints and tips for those thinking of nominating themselves as a candidate. In the meantime, here’s what you need to know about the Board elections.
Who can vote in the elections?
Voting is open to anyone living in the National Park who is over 16 years old and is registered to vote.
You can check if you are currently registered to vote by contacting your local Electoral Registration Office. If you are not currently registered to vote they can provide an application form which you will need to sign and return to your relevant Electoral Registration Officer by 8th June.
Who can stand for election?
You need to be 21 or older to stand as a candidate. You don’t necessarily have to live in the National Park area but you must have the support of 10 people who do in order to be nominated.
