Election Address Booklet
The regulations make provision for candidates to be entitled to
include a short election address in a single election address
booklet to be issued by the returning officer to every local elector.
The returning officer may require candidates to provide a contribution
towards the costs of printing the election address booklet. The
amount must be the same for each candidate including their address
in the booklet. Any funds greater than the cost of printing the
booklet must be returned equally to those who have contributed.
The net contribution made to the cost of printing the booklet
by a candidate counts towards their election expenditure.
The returning officer may deliver the booklet in the manner that
he or she believes most appropriate. The cost of delivering the
booklet is met by the local authority and not included in the
