With six weeks left until polling day, the Recorder is launching its coverage of the general election – and we want you to get involved.

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 20 – giving readers the chance to grill them on the issues that matter to you.

Are you concerned about housing in Redbridge? 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.

Redbridge’s four seats, Ilford North, Ilford South, Leyton and Wanstead and Chingford and Woodford Green, will be hotly contested by all parties this year so every vote counts.

See the election section of our website launching on Thursday for the full list of candidates, map of the constituencies and find your nearest polling station.

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