Since the Independent State of Cuckfield was first suggested in 1966 by Peter Bowring there has been no shortage of people within the Parish of Cuckfield willing to run for Mayor. Each year a few people step forward as mayoral candidates to take part in the UK's most corrupt election!! In 2016 the Cuckfield community excelled and an amazing 50 candidates stood for the Independent State's 50th anniversary!

Throughout the year building up to the election candidates collect votes 1 penny a time, you, can vote for as many candidates, as many times as you like, just pay 1 penny each time you vote - simples.

Election night is a relaxed affair on the third Friday in October at one of the village pubs from 8pm to midnight with food and a rising atmosperee of excitement and honest corruption. Votes are posted for counting continuously throughout the evening with up to the minute scores on display. Suspense mounts for the final count as there is a last minute rush before voting closes at 9:55pm.

Anyone who lives in the Parish of Cuckfield is eligible to be a candidate. You could be our next Mayor. It doesn't matter how much you raise its all good fun whoever gets in.

The new mayor of the Independent State of Cuckfield is Claire Bellamy
