Candidates standing in Leeds City Council election May 3 2018


The below information relates the election which will be held on 3 May 2018.

All the seats for Leeds City Council are up for election this year and you can check the full list of candidates who will be standing to be a councillor in your area here

The major difference is that you will be able to vote for three councillors. This is because Leeds City Council has recently been through a ward boundary review and some ward boundaries have changed. There have always been three councillors per ward, but in past elections you’ve only needed to vote for one at a time.

For this election your ballot paper will include many more candidates and you will be able to select up to three. You can only vote for one candidate once – you won’t be able to give two or three votes to one candidate. If you choose to you can opt to vote for only one or two candidates.

The May 3 2018 vote in Leeds is what is termed as an “all-out” election, as all 99 local council seats will be contested.  Further information about the election, including how to register to vote, request a postal vote and lots of other related issues is available here on Leeds City Council website
