Get the Green Party on Northamptonshire ballot papers in 2024!

by Northamptonshire Green Party in Kettering, Northamptonshire, United Kingdom

From the crisis of inequality to the climate and nature emergencies, now more than ever, we need principled politicians in parliament with the bold ideas necessary to tackle the biggest issues facing our country.

In Northamptonshire, we must ensure that every voter has the opportunity to put a cross in a Green Party candidate box. We have candidates ready to stand right across our area, so whether it's Clare Slater in Daventry, Eishar Bassan in Northampton North, Simon Sneddon in Northampton South or Emmie Williamson in South Northamptonshire, it's important we all have that chance to vote Green.

To do this we must raise £500 per constituency for each deposit - if we don't raise our deposits, we risk losing that Green voice.

That's where you come in.

Please help us by chipping in £20, or whatever you can afford, to help us get over the line.

Are you with us?

A note on Short Money

Did you know every vote for the Green Party - your vote - translates into funding to MPs of our party during the next Parliament? Even if you don't live in the areas our MPs are based.

So every donation has a double impact, and it could even have a triple impact:

  • Your donation gets a Green candidate for Parliament able to challenge the old parties
     
  • By helping our candidates to stand, your donation enables all the votes they receive to translate into government funding for the Green MPs elected elsewhere
     
  • If our candidates retain their deposits, those funds come back and can be spent by the local Green Party again, so we can keep building strength both locally and nationally

Your Candidates

Clare is committed to fighting for a fairer, greener future. She is a Parish Councillor in Bugbrooke, where she co-established the Environmental Working Group, organising regular litter picks, re-use days and promoting sustainability throughout the village. Clare is also a founding member of Climate Action West Northamptonshire where she writes for the online forum and hosts climate cafes. This will be the second time standing for parliamentary election in Daventry – her husband and two children are right behind her.

For more information please see the Northamptonshire Green Party website.

P.S. Because we're a political party we're required to run electoral register checks from people making donations above £500, and if you donate over £1,500 during a year, we are required to let the Electoral Commission know, who will make this available on their website. All donations go to general campaigning funds.
