#ECC16 | Exeter City Council local elections

Local elections are taking place on 5th May 2016

Local elections are taking place on 5th May 2016

On 5 May 2016, following a review of electoral arrangements by the Local Government Boundary Commission for England, all 39 City Council seats (reduced from 40) will be up for election. Electors will be able to vote for up to three candidates each in this election. From 2018 the Council will revert to electing a third of members each year. In each of the 13 wards, the elected Councillor who received the fewest votes in 2016 will serve a two year term, the next fewest a three year term and the highest number of votes a four year term.

From the elections due in 2018, each elected Councillor will be appointed for a four year term, with a third of the 39 seats contested each year (one seat per ward). No City Council elections will be held in 2017 or every fourth year afterwards, as this will be when Devon County Council hold elections for county councillors.
