Elected representatives are individuals who put themselves forward for election (but you do need a proposer and seconder) and they should be on the electoral register.
Nominated representatives represent local interest groups within the community - such as the local business association or a school council (but not a political party).
Nomination forms, along with further details can be obtained from the returning officers (above). Nomination forms will also be available online, but not until Monday 31st August. Here is the website where you will be able to download them.
More details will be posted later this week.
