Elections 2021

Your vote, your Lancashire

Elections are on Thursday 6 May 2021 in 16 days

Lancashire's voters will go to the polls this May to elect their representatives to shape and decide on council services.

County councillors are elected by the people and make important decisions affecting the lives of everyone in 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 to cover all the electoral divisions in the 12 Lancashire district areas. In Lancashire there are two unitary authorities (Blackburn with Darwen, and Blackpool). Lancashire county councillors do not represent these areas.

District Local Elections and the election for the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Lancashire which were postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic, will now also take place on Thursday 6 May 2021.

District local elections are due to take place in Burnley, ChorleyHyndburnPendle, Preston, Rossendale and West Lancs
