Elections and election results

Election dates

We organise several different types of election.

Council elections

The last council elections took place on Thursday 3 May 2018. Next elections will be in 2019.

Thurrock Council election, 3 May 2018

Elections in Thurrock take place over a 4 year period. One third of the council is elected each year to serve for 4 years.

Some wards have elections twice in 4 years. Other wards have elections 3 times in 4 years. Thurrock doesn’t have a council election in the fourth year. Sometimes we need to combine council elections with other elections.
