From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The 2010 United Kingdom local elections are currently scheduled to be held on Thursday 6 May 2010, possibly alongside the 2010 general election, which must be held on or before 3 June 2010.[1] Direct elections will be held to all 32 London Boroughs, all 36 Metropolitian Boroughs, 78 Second-tier District Authorities, 19 Unitary Authorities and various Mayoral posts, all in England. For those authorities elected "all out" these will be the first elections since 2006. The elections due to be held in Devon, Norfolk and Suffolk are all subject to change due to ongoing structure and boundary reviews.[2]
