Programme-related guidance

Guidance related to broadcast content and standards.

On 2 May 2024 there will be:

  • local (and mayoral) elections taking place in some parts of England;
  • London Assembly and Mayoral elections;
  • and elections for Police and Crime Commissioners for England and Wales.

To help broadcasters to take editorial decisions during election campaigns, we have published a digest of evidence of past electoral support (election results) and evidence of current support (opinion polls).
