Candidates, agents and campaigners at the UK General Election must follow the Electoral Commission’s Code of Conduct for Campaigners (Electoral Commission website).

The Code provides a guide for campaigners, electoral administrators and police forces to what is, and is not, acceptable behaviour at polling stations and in the community during the lead-up to polling day.  

The code also provides information relating to the offence of the handling of postal voting documents by political campaigners and the requirement of secrecy for postal voters. Further information about changes to postal voting is available on the Electoral Commission’s website.
