We hold full City Council elections every four years. The last election was in 2019 and the next is due on 4 May 2023.

There is also a casual vacancy in the Boreham and The Leighs ward, following the death of Councillor John Galley. We will hold an election for this vacancy at the next local election, unless we receive a request to hold it earlier. You can view the Notice of Vacancy for Boreham and The Leighs.

The Elections Act

The government recently passed an Act that changes the way you experience elections. The Act covers multiple areas, including:

  • introducing voter ID at polling stations
  • changes to postal and proxy voting
  • improving the accessibility of polling stations
  • changes to overseas voting
  • changes for campaigners and spending donation rules

These changes could come into force for our elections to be held in 2023 and elections after this.

You can read details of the Act .

You can also read a summary of the Act from the Electoral Commission.
