Local council elections in 2010

February 11, 2010

UPDATED:  Rallings and Thrasher say there are 176 councils with elections.  The Electoral Commission say there are 166.  My original post below:

There are 166 councils with elections on May 6th.  This includes:  32 London Boroughs, 36 Metropolitan Authorities, 20 Unitaries  and 78 District Councils.   In four of these councils there will also be simultaneous elections for the directly elected Mayor.   Here is the full list.    I’m going to do a follow up post on councils that might change political control, but in the meantime I would be interested in any comments on this.
