What are local elections?

In local elections, we choose who represents us on our councils and health boards. Local elections are run by local councils and held every 3 years by postal vote. If you’re on the electoral roll, you can vote in local elections where you live.

The next local elections are in October 2019. If you’re enrolled, your local council will send you voting papers in the mail.
