Kent County Council election

The county council election was held on Thursday 6 May 2021. 80 councillors will be elected from 71 electoral divisions. The election of a county councillor in the Elham Valley division was cancelled following the death of a candidate. A new election for this division will be scheduled in due course.

The names of the candidates standing in the 2021 election have now been published on our election notices pages.

The election gives you the chance to have your say on how the council is run. We look after services such as education, transport, social services and safety so your vote is really important.

Medway is not part of our council and holds its own elections.
