Elections and election results

Election dates

We organise several different types of election.

Council elections

There will be a by-election for 1 seat in the Aveley and Uplands ward on 21 March 2019.

Elections in Thurrock take place over a 4 year period. One third of the council is elected each year to serve for 4 years. Next elections for a third of the council will take place on Thursday 2 May 2019.

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.
