Local Authority Elections 2019 MAy 2
2019 United Kingdom local elections
Local elections in the United Kingdom are scheduled to be held on Thursday 2 May 2019, contesting 248 English local councils, six directly elected mayors in England, and all 11 local councils in Northern Ireland. A total of 8773 councillors are due to be elected. Additionally, there will be by-elections for 39 local authority seats, taking the total number elected to 8812.
With the exception of areas whose electoral cycle has temporarily changed (due to a boundary review) or permanently changed, or that have been reorganised, the seats up for election in England were last contested in the 2015 local elections, on the same day as the General Election from that year.
