It’s a week since the 55 candidates who will compete for thirteen city council seats in this year’s 4 May local elections were declared. Campaign materials are already being stuffed through letterboxes thick and fast.
Some contain surprising claims about the past achievements of the candidate or the political party they represent, others make eye-catching promises about what will be delivered if they are elected.
Help us hold Exeter’s politicians and political parties to account by sending us any city-wide or ward-level campaign materials you receive so we can factcheck their claims and challenge elected candidates across the city to fulfil the election pledges they make.
Please take a photo of both sides of any leaflets or printed materials you want to share and email them to
You can also forward campaign emails to the same address, or send us links to social media posts you think might be stretching the truth or making promises that might not get delivered.
Thanks for your help in making Exeter local democracy more accountable.
