organisations - which must approve local candidates.
Candidates are not required to live in the constituencies
in which they run; the candidate with the most votes
wins the constituency seat.
A total of 19 candidates are contesting the 2015 General Election. Both the majority Anguillan United Movement (AUM) led by Dr. Ellis L. Webster; and the opposition Anguillan United Front (AUF) led by former Finance, Economics, Commerce and Tourism Minister Victor Banks, have a candidate running for election in each of the seven constituencies. The newly formed Democracy, Opportunity, Vision & Empowerment (DOVE) party led by Sutcliffe Hodge has candidates vying for seats in three constituencies. There are also two independents vying to become the representatives of their respective constituencies.
