Elections in York

Planned maintenance to the Planning Portal

Due to an upgrade to the Planning Portal on Saturday 18 February, customers will be unable to view documents on the site until Sunday 19 February.

Our council elections are held on a four-year cycle. The most recent elections for City of York Councillors were combined with Parish Councillor elections and with the UK Parliamentary Election (general election) on Thursday 7 May 2015.

There are two parliamentary constituencies for City of York Council:

  • York Central Constituency
  • York Outer Constituency

Election information for candidates

Get election information for candidates (and potential candidates) if you want to be elected as a member of City of York Council, and find out how to see copy of the register of electors to check electoral numbers for proposers, seconders or assentors to the nomination form.

Revised ward structure

A recent electoral review by the Local Government Boundary Commission for England ordered us to create new wards and to some amend others. These changes happened with the council elections in May 2015.
