Candidate’s Election Expenses

The Electoral Commission has published guidance on candidate’s spending. For expenses purposes, every constituency in Cornwall is a County constituency.

The spending limit is based on a fixed amount, plus a variable amount per registered elector in your constituency.

The candidate’s maximum spending limits for each constituency are as follows:

There is no long campaign at the 2024 UK Parliamentary general election.

The Electoral Commission website has more information on the spending formula used to calculate the above limits.
