Voting and elections

We run all local, regional and national elections that take place in the district. We also maintain the electoral register. We seek to manage these in a transparent, accountable and innovative way. Our aim is to make sure that local people are fully able to exercise their right to vote and to influence decisions that affect their lives. 

View voting and election information, including how to vote, election notices and results.

Your vote matters – don’t lose it. To be able to vote at an election you need to be registered to vote. 

Can’t get to your polling station? You can apply to vote by post.
