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 in May 2022

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.

The last council elections took place for one third of the council on 6 May 2021.

Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner elections

Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner (PFCC) elections are held every 4 years.

The last election of a Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner for Essex took place on 6 May 2021, after being postponed in 2020 due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Next elections are due in 2024.

UK Parliament elections

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

The last UK Parliament elections took place on 12 December 2019.
