Hustings Guidance for Churches

This guide has been produced by several organisations in partnership to help guide churches in holding a question time meeting or hustings for the General Election.

CTBI have set up a website: www.churcheselection.org.uk which will include this guide and election resources from member churches in due course.

During the period before a General Election, churches and community organisations often organise election meetings (sometimes known as hustings) where members of the public can listen to and ask questions of the candidates who are standing for election. They do this as a public service, to support the democratic process, to facilitate public debate and as a contribution to the common good. This opportunity for respectful discussion in a neutral space is often appreciated by candidates as well as voters.
