Elected Governors – 2020 elections postponed

Our Governor Elections are now postponed until September 2021 due to the COVID-19 crisis.  Below is an overview of how the elections run.  We look forward to running this campaign next year. 

About the elections

Six of our elected governors are due for re-election. If you live in Letchworth you can vote for your preferred candidate, but only if you are registered to do so.

How to register to vote

To be eligible to vote, you need to be registered on the Edited Register of Electors and/or the Full Register of Electors for all parishes within Letchworth Garden City. Only people who are on the register are eligible to vote. We will soon be writing to these people with a registration postcard to complete and return to the Foundation.

Register as a candidate

If you would like to become a governor, you can have an informal chat with us ahead of a new date being announced. Closer to the time, we will write to all people registered to vote and invite candidate applications to complete an application form along with a 300-word statement that will be available on our website. We will also advertise for candidates in the local press and on social media.

The Elections

Only those registered to vote can take part.

Keep an eye on our website, e-newsletters, poster sites and social media for further updates.
