See our weekly coverage for candidate profiles, key battlegrounds, your views and more

We will bring you in-depth analysis of all the key battlegrounds and the latest news from the campaign trail as you decide which candidates you want to represent you for the next five years.

And for the first time, we will invite candidates to Recorder HQ for our own social media evening on Monday April 27 – giving readers the chance to directly grill them on the issues which matter to you.

Are you concerned about housing in Havering? Or the rising population of the borough?

Each candidate will be put in the hot seat for a live Q&A session, where they will be quizzed by you, the readers, over education issues, health care and everything else that is important to you.

Recorder editor Chris Carter said: “Havering is a vibrant borough politically and our news team is looking forward to reporting on the cut and thrust of election time in our three constituencies.

“Events like our social media evening and the various hustings we will cover aim to give residents the chance to contribute and really get to grips with the issues that matter to them.”

Havering’s three seats, Romford, Hornchurch and Upminster, and Rainham and Dagenham, will be hotly contested by all parties this year so every vote counts.

To send your questions to us for the social media evening you can email or keep reading our election coverage to find out how you can ask the candidates questions live on the night via Twitter, Facebook and other social media platforms.
