Elections and election results

Election dates

We organise several different types of election.

Council elections

There will be elections for a third of the council on Thursday 6 May 2021.

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.
