Poll: Do you plan to vote in the local elections?

The local elections will be held in May – will you head to the polling stations?

POLITICAL PARTIES HAVE already begun to select their candidates for the local elections this year, with many independent candidates throwing their hat in the ring ahead of the upcoming local elections in May.

Local Government

There has been radical reform announced for local government over the last year, with new local election boundaries announced last year, meaning counties will have roughly one councillor for every 4,830 people, with one additional councillor for every town council being merged into the counties – subject to a maximum of four.

Poll Results:

No (1794)
