Local Elections refer to County, Borough and Parish Elections.
A successful candidate in any local election will serve for a term of 4 years, unless a candidate was nominated to fill a casual vacancy (which may occur due to a resignation or death of a councillor) then it would be for the remaining term of the retiring or deceased councillor.
A candidate must be 18 years of age on the day of nomination and a commonwealth citizen, citizen of the Republic of Ireland, or a citizen of another Member State of the European Union. Other qualifications are set out on the nomination paper. There is no deposit payable for local elections.
The next Borough Council Elections will be held on 3 May 2018.
The next County Council Elections will be held on 4 May 2017.
The next Parish Council Elections will be held on 2 May 2019.
