Our council by-election archive


This archive comprises by-elections for principal tiered authorities across England, Scotland and Wales. More results will be added as time goes on.

Parish and town council by-elections are not accounted for.

To deal with any potential confusion, all share changes are calculated from the last time the seat was up for election, not the ward. A ward electing members in 2014, 2015 and 2016, for example, having a by-election to fill a vacancy for the 2014-18 term, will have share changes calculated according to the results of 2014, not 2016.
