Elections and election results

Election dates

We help to organise several different types of election.

Council elections

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.

UK Parliament elections

The government usually holds parliamentary elections every 5 years. Go to the UK Parliament website.

Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner elections

Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner elections are held every 5 years.

European Parliament elections

European elections are held every 5 years. The next election will take place in May 2019. Go to the European Parliament website.
