Local government elections take place at least every 4 years. Not all local government elections take place at the same time.

The 2019 local elections will be held on Thursday 2nd May 2017 as well as elections for the newly created English Regional Mayors.

Local government councillors in England and Wales are elected using the First Past the Post system. You vote for one candidate in your local area and the candidate with the most votes wins.

Bracknell Forest Council is made up of 8 ward areas and has been a Conservative Majority since 1997 and has also retained the same leader throughout this time.

Bracknell will see candidate representation from the following main-stream political parties, click the party name to view the candidates.
