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. The next county council elections will take place in May 2025.
A new Elections Act has been passed in Parliament and from May electors voting at polling stations must show photo ID to be able to vote.
Most people will have photo ID, some examples are:
- Photographic driving licences
- Biometric immigration documents
- Some concessionary travel passes.
A full list is available on our Voter ID page.
If you do not have any of these forms of photo ID, you will be able to apply for a Voter Authority Certificate.
