Is there an election in your area?
All registered voters receive a polling card in the run up to the election, confirming your details. However, you will only be required to vote if there is a contested election in your area.
Elections are contested when there are more candidates standing for election than seats available.
Five County Wards are uncontested in this year’s local elections, meaning there will be no County Council votes in these areas. They are:
- Oakham North West
- Ryhall and Casterton
Details of who has been elected unopposed in these areas can be found in the Result of Uncontested Elections notice.
All other County Wards in Rutland are contested. The Statement of Persons Nominated confirms who is standing for election in contested County Wards.
