Programme-related guidance


Guidance related to broadcast content and standards.

On 5 May 2022 there will be:

  • Elections for the Northern Ireland Assembly;
  • Local (and mayoral) elections taking place in some parts of England; and
  • Local elections in Scotland and Wales.

To help broadcasters to take editorial decisions during election campaigns, we are publishing a digest of evidence of past electoral support (i.e. election results) and evidence of current support (in the form of opinion polls).
