Welcome to the Press Association Elections website
Council and mayoral elections 2019
Local elections take place on Thursday May 2 at 248 councils in England. Polls are also due for directly-elected mayors at six authorities. Information about the Press Association’s nominations and results coverage of these elections is contained in the advisories below for customers on this site.
Further advisories will be provided in the event of any unscheduled poll, such as another snap general election.
Note that European Parliament elections in late May are not due to include the UK, which is set to leave the EU on March 29. PA has delivered full nominations and results coverage for the UK component of these polls in the past. PA does not provide EU-wide elections data but covers the outcome in its editorial reports.
For details of elections messages in XML format used for digital products, see XML Format under Delivery Methods. The historical XML for the most recent sets of polls can be found under Example messages, along with test sets.
Note that the tests sets include that from the live test carried out on January 22 for a possible snap general election.
The June 2017 snap general election results have also been made available in readable form in the Constituencies section for reference.
