On Thursday, 6 May 2021
District Council elections will take place in all 21 wards of the Wakefield District. On the same day, the first
West Yorkshire Combined Authority Mayoral election will also be taking place. In some areas, there will also be
Town or Parish Council by elections going ahead.
The elections will take place at a time when Covid-19 continues to present risks to public health. Depending on the infection rate, measures taken to control the spread of the virus may change as we approach May. This means that we cannot currently answer all the questions you may have about how the election will be run. However, we are working hard with the UK Government, the Electoral Commission, the wider electoral community and public health authorities to help ensure you can stay safe when casting your vote in May.
We will update this page with further information as it becomes available. Further information can be found on the Electoral Commission's website at:
