Election Cycle Consultation

Consultation Details

Title: Consultation about the Derby City Council Election Cycle
Start date: 13/05/2016
Closing date: 08/07/2016
Status: Closed
Why are we consulting?

Derby City Council is considering changing its current Election Cycle. We want you the residents of Derby, as the city's electorate, to tell us how often you think you should vote for your councillors.

Under Derby's current model, voters go to the polls three times in every four years, on each occasion voting for 17 of the city's 51 councillors. Each year, one third of councillors are up for election, except in the fourth year when there are no elections.

Under the 'Whole Council Elections' model, voters would go to the polls once every four years, but all 51 of the councillors would be up for election. This four-year cycle would result in more councillors' seats being contested at the same time, with no scheduled local elections during the intervening period.

Who are we consulting?
