Who is Standing For Birmingham’s Local Elections


There have been some important changes made to Birmingham City Council elections.

This is the first time that Birmingham City Council residents will have the chance to vote in an ‘all out’ election.

There will not be another ballot until 2022.

The number of wards has increased from 40 to 69, so each one is smaller with fewer people in it and are represented by 101 councillors – with either one or two councillors serving each ward.

Some polling stations are changing too.

Please take the time to check your poll card before you head to the polling station.

If you are registered, you will still receive a poll card with information about which ward you are in and where your polling station is.

Always check this before you vote.

While most people take their poll card with them to vote, don’t worry if you forget – if you are registered you will still be able to vote.
