Simple:

<< { c4 } \\ { a8 e } >>

(with relative pitches)

Adding clef:

\relative c' {
  \clef bass
  << { c4 } \\ { a8 e } >>
}

If it's just a short passage that has two voices, you can use temporary voices:

\version "2.24.1"
{ \clef bass << { c'4 } \\ { a8[ e] } >> } 

If your piece has many places that use two voices, you might want to instead use separate voices:

<<
  \new Voice { \voiceThree \voiceThreeMusic }
  \new Voice { \voiceFour \voiceFourMusic }
>>
