First publication date: Tuesday 4th April 2023, 22:36 (BST).

The nomination period in the election of 66 councilllors to Wirral Council ended at 4pm today (4th April 2023) and the list of candidates has been made public. Each resident will have three votes this year (as each of the 22 wards on Wirral are electing 3 councillors for a 4 year term of office). The votes will be counted this year at the Wirral Tennis and Sports Centre using the First Past the Post system. At the end of this piece is the list of candidates standing in the election listed alphabetically by ward name, followed by surname. If a candidate is standing on behalf of a political party, the registered description of that political party chosen is included directly after the candidate’s name. Candidates with a line through their name have withdrawn their candidacy at time of publication.

Due to a legislation change a few years ago, candidates can now choose not to have their home address published when the list of candidates is published, so as roughly half of the candidates have chosen to keep their home address private I have not included the home addresses below. However if you would like to write to one of the candidates during the election, the names and addresses of the election agents (although some candidates are acting as their own election agent) is published here on Wirral Council’s website during the election.

The timetable of the deadlines to register to vote and also to apply for a postal or proxy vote can be found in this earlier post about the Notice of Election. Please note that due to extra legal restrictions on statements about election candidate’s character or conduct during the election period, any comments will be moderated before publication. Finally I will just declare an interest as a person registered (and eligible) to vote in the Wirral Council elections of councillors for the Bidston and St James ward in 2023.
