ALL-OUT LOCAL ELECTIONS - YOUR MOST IMPORTANT OPPORTUNITY TO CHANGE OUR BOROUGH IN A GENERATION
2022 is a special year for local elections, due to boundary changes all 60 of our borough council seats are being contested at the local election on Thursday 5th May. Unlike other years you will have the opportunity to cast three votes to select the three people that you want to represent your ward. It is a unique chance to completely change the makeup of Rochdale Council and could lead to some interesting results. As Conservatives, this is our best opportunity to gain a significant increase in our representation on Council, but we need your support to do that.
On May 5th please use your votes to elect the Conservative candidates for your ward, Find out who your candidates are by clicking here.
Not every ward has three candidates, so please just select the number of Conservatives available on your ballot paper, whether that be one, two or three, you do not have to make up your ballot paper by voting for other parties or candidates.
With your help and support we hope to return the biggest Conservative representation in Rochdale so please use your votes wisely on Thursday 5th May (or return your postal vote pack) to elect only Conservative Candidates.
