Local Government Elections 

Local Government Elections were held in Wales on Thursday 5th May 2022.

This will include elections to Pembrokeshire County Council and elections to Town and Community Council in Pembrokeshire. Elected councillors will serve a term of 5 years. 

These local government elections will be the first to be held since the introduction of new legislation in Wales which allows all those who are registered, legally resident in Wales and over 16 on polling day to vote.

These will also be the first elections to be administered on the new boundary arrangements. Voters may be voting in a different electoral ward to the one which they have previously voted in – some wards have changes, some remain the same. Further information will be provided on voter material in the run up to the elections.
