How to become a councillor

What the disqualifications are

These could prevent you becoming a candidate. The disqualifications include a person:

  • who works for Wandsworth Council,
  • who has been adjudged bankrupt, and
  • who has been sentenced to prison for 3 months or more in the previous 5 years.

Certain exceptions may apply so you should check the position carefully before consenting to your nomination as candidate.
