On Thursday 4 May 2017, voters will go to the polls to elect their representatives to shape and decide on county council services which affect everyone living in the twelve district areas of Lancashire.
The county council provides around 85% of all local government services in Lancashire. Services include education, fostering and adoption, health and social care, cultural services, libraries and archives, registering births, deaths and marriages, recycling and highways and transportation.
There are 84 county councillors elected by the people to cover the electoral divisions in the twelve district areas. In Lancashire there are two unitary authorities (Blackburn with Darwen, and Blackpool). Lancashire county councillors do not represent these areas.
You can only vote if your name is on the register of electors. If you would like to check that you are registered, please contact your local district council. Its quick and easy to register to vote online.
