Local government elections

Local government elections are held once every four years for councillors to be elected for each of the divisions in the county.


The most recent county council election was held in May 2017 and the next one will be in May 2021.

You will also need to contact your district or borough council if you need a proxy vote (you cannot attend on polling day and nominate someone to vote on your behalf) or a postal vote.

You can also view the results for past county council elections.

Elections are also held for district, borough and city councils as well as parish and town councils. You can register to vote and find out more about elections in these areas from the Your Vote Matters (opens in a new window) website or visiting the website of the council you are interested in.
