Community council elections 2019 – briefing note for community councillors
This briefing note gives an outline of the process and rules by which councillors are elected to the City of Edinburgh’s Community Councils. Community councillors are elected on a four-year cycle. Elections will next take place in September to October 2019. Each election is managed by a separate independent returning officer – generally a local ward councillor. Continue reading
If there are more than 16 candidates for LCCC in September, the following election ‘countdown’ will apply
|Notice of Election (start of nomination period)
|Close of Nominations (forms to Returning Officer)
|Withdrawal of Nominations
|Candidates’ personal statements
|Notice of Poll (if required)
The countdown doesn’t yet have dates because we do not know whether there will be an actual election. (If there are 16 or fewer candidates, they will all be deemed elected unopposed.)
