Elections and election results

Election dates

We organise several different types of election.

Council elections

Elections for one third of the council are expected to take place on Thursday 5 May 2022

Some wards have 2 elections every 4 years. Other wards have 3 elections every 4 years. Thurrock has no council elections in 1 year out of every 4 years.

Sometimes we need to combine council elections with other elections.
