For those candidates that wish to take up the offer, HU12 will publish on this website a statement from each about their campaign for election (up to 500 words). The public will also be able to ask questions of each candidate directly by posting comments under each candidate’s statement (this will be moderated so expect a delay in seeing the questions published).
HU12 will also be keeping a record of all leaflets delivered during the election campaign. NOTE: Where high-resolution easy-read copies of leaflets are available, you will be able to click on the leaflet and read it in full, otherwise they are stored here as a record only.
Of course it is up to candidates themselves whether or not they take advantage of this website service. From the HU12 perspective, this is not just about improving local election news coverage, but is also aimed at achieving greater transparency and accountability. The more information we get about our candidates, the easier it will be to hold those elected to account for their promises over the next four years.

Background: Election 2007 Results
The same Thursday 5th May will see elections to Hedon Town Council, Paull and Preston Parish Councils. A Referendum on the voting system for United Kingdom parliamentary elections will also be held on the same day. Voters will be asked to state ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ to the following question:
At present, the UK uses the ‘first past the post’ system to elect MPs to the House of Commons. Should the ‘alternative vote’ system be used instead?
National Campaigns for each option have already started.
