Government and Politics

Manchester Town Hall

Elected representatives make decisions that affect the issues we campaign on. Informing and influencing national and local politicans and political candidates is an important part of our activities. We’ve produced a guide to working with local elected representatives.

Election Surveys

Our surveys of election candidates are an opportunity for us to remind candidates about important environmental and social issues and to help voters decide who to support. We contact candidates by email and Twitter and invite them to fill out our survey online. We display the results as they come in, summarising them by party and Greater Manchester borough. You can find the results below.


In April 2021, we surveyed the 1022 standing in the Greater Manchester local elections and received 227 responses.
