When we hold by-elections

A by-election is held to fill an elected position that has become vacant.

For example, if a Governing Body or a local board member resigns, before their term ends, a by-election is held to replace that member.

A local body by-election must be held if a vacancy occurs more than 12 months before the next three-yearly local election.

If a Governing Body or local board member resigns, we have to carry out a by-election within the relevant ward or local board area, if the resignation happens more than 12 months before the 2019 local body elections.
