How to nominate a candidate for the Federal Party elections 2022

Want to make sure that your favoured candidate for President, Vice President with responsibility for Ethnic Minorities or a Federal Committee gets nominated? Find out how today.

To stand for in this round of Federal Elections, candidates must secure nominations from their fellow members in order to stand. How many nominations are required varies depending on the position

Any member can nominate a candidate and who you’ve nominated isn’t made public, though it is shared with the person that you've nominated by email.

If you’d like to nominate a candidate, here’s what to do:

1: Request your nomination code

If you’d like to nominate a candidate, you’ll need your nomination code. This code is unique to you - so please keep it safe.

You have to fill in this online form to request it:

Request your code

You need to know the email the party has on file for you. There are a few ways you can find out about what that is:

  • Check the bottom of every email from HQ, you’ll find the email and your membership number there.
  • Contact your local party - who can check on the system for you
  • Email we’ll be happy to confirm for you

If you've requested a nomination code for a previous election, that code should still work. You can just go to: and enter it. The team will contact you if there's an issue with it.

2: Read your email

Once you’ve submitted the nomination form, we’ll automatically check the details we have on file for you and if what you’ve provided matches the membership database, you’ll get an email with your nomination code.

The email will come from Greg Foster - Lib Dems, using the email address

In that email, there’ll be a link to a second online form, where you’ll actually be able to nominate a candidate.

If you don’t get an email within an hour of submitting the form, drop an email to or call 0207 022 0988 and we’ll be able to issue your code by email or phone.

We’ll also give you the URL for the nomination form.

3: Submit your nomination

Once you have your nomination code and the link to the nomination form, you simply need to enter your nomination code and pick the candidate you want to nominate.

When you’ve submitted the form, you’ll get an email confirming who you nominated.

The rules on how many candidates you can nominate vary by committee - and if you nominate too many people, some of your nominations may be invalidated. If this happens, we will contact you to notify you and make sure your preferences have been correctly recorded.
