Triennial Local Elections
Elections of members of local authorities are held once every three years, on the second Saturday in October. The last elections were held on 12 October 2019. By-elections are held when a vacancy occurs.
The triennial elections of regional councils, city and district councils, community boards and local boards are held at the same time as elections for district health boards and licensing trusts. Westland District Council’s Election Statistics can be found here.
The District is divided into three Wards for electoral purposes. See the Ward maps below:
