Elections in 2020

Due to the COVID-19 emergency, the government has passed emergency legislation to delay the scheduled Police and Crime Commissioner election due to take place on 7 May 2020. This election will now take place on 6 May 2021.

The legislation also gave authority for any by-elections that would normally take place when vacancies on councils arise to be delayed until the same date in May 2021.
