West Suffolk Council election -4th May 2023 – Also Parish and Town Council elections are on the same day.

West Suffolk councillors are elected every four year unless a by-election takes place to fill any vacancies. This election will take place on the 4th May 2023.

The big difference this time is you will require ID to vote. This is to ensure there are no votes cast that should not be. The electoral commission’s guidance on voter ID can be found here: https://www.electoralcommission.org.uk/i-am-a/voter/voter-id?gclsrc=aw.ds

There is lots of information on elections on the West Suffolk Council website which can be found here. https://www.westsuffolk.gov.uk/council/elections/

Being a local councillor is very satisfying. You get a chance to make a real difference to people’s lives. And it’s not just about issues that West Suffolk Council look after it is also about being a local champion for residents, what ever the issue is. You would be surprised how much more notice organisations take when a councillor gets in contact.

All 81 parish and town councils across West Suffolk are up for election. This is often a great place to cut your teeth as a councillor. Why not stand for election?
