How to join a ticket

How to join a ticket

The ticket system, first introduced by PARSA in 2016, allows candidates to group together and identify themselves under a ticket name. This is helpful for candidates who share similar positions on issues to let voters know that, should those on that ticket be elected, they will back the proposals endorsed by the ticket.

If candidates are part of a ticket, the ticket name will be displayed next to the candidate's name on the ballot. If candidates do not register under a ticket name, the word "Independent" appears next to their name on the ballot.

If you want to run on a ticket and want ticket conveners to know you're interested, contact the Returning Officer ( for more information. 

Potential ticket convenors wishing to get in touch with those looking for a ticket to join should contact the Returning Officer at You will need to confirm to the Returning Officer that you will only use the information provided to form a ticket.

Check out the PARSA Roles Descriptions page for a breakdown of the different roles.
