Become a councillor

Help shape Surrey's future

The county council elections are approaching in May 2025 where all 81 seats on Surrey County Council will be contested. Each seat is represented by a County Councillor, could one of these be you?

As a successful councillor candidate for Surrey County Council, you'll have the chance to be the voice of your fellow residents, advocating for policies and initiatives that will benefit our community. Your commitment to public service and your willingness to tackle complex issues head-on will be invaluable in driving positive change for Surrey.

If you have a passion for change, care for your local community and want to address the pressing issues facing our county. Then becoming a County Councillor could be right for you.

Drop in sessions

Due to the upcoming general election, we have decided to pause holding our Be A Councillor events during the pre-election period. We will be looking to reschedule the events for later on in the year, so please do check our webpage in the summer for details of the rescheduled events.
