This guidance for civil servants explains how to remain impartial during the pre-election period.


General election guidance: 2015


This guidance takes effect at the dissolution of Parliament on 30 March 2015. It applies to all UK civil servants, and the board members and staff of Non-Departmental Public Bodies and other arms length bodies.

The principles underlying the conduct of civil servants in a general election are an extension of those which apply at all times, as set out in the Civil Service Code.
