County Council Elections on 4 May 2017


From 7am to 10pm on 4 May polling booths will be open across the county so that you can cast your vote to decide who you want to elect as your local county councillor.

Your county councillor


Oxfordshire has six main councils - one county council, four district councils and a city council. There are also more than 300 parishes and town councils, mainly outside Oxford city.

Each council provides different services and has its own set of councillors to represent residents.

Your district and city councillors represent residents in areas called wards. Your city or district council services include:
  • Environmental health
  • Housing
  • Leisure and recreation
  • Planning applications
  • Waste collection.
County councillors represent larger areas called divisions. Your county council services include:
  • Children’s services
  • Support for schools
  • Fire and Rescue
  • Libraries and museums
  • Roads
  • Social care for older people and disabled adults
  • Community transport
  • Trading standards
  • Countryside services
  • Waste disposal

On 4 May, you’ll be voting to choose your county councillor to represent you.

Where and when can I vote?


Your polling station is written on your polling card. All polling stations in Oxfordshire will be open from 7am to 10pm on Thursday 4 May. You don’t need to present your polling card in order to vote.


When will the results be available?


The vote will be counted on Friday 5 May, and we’ll be tweeting the results as they are declared.

You can follow all the results using #OxonVote17 on twitter and all results will be published as they're declared at www.oxfordshire.gov.uk/elections 

June General Election


It’s probably not escaped your notice that there's also going to be a General Election in June, in which you’ll be able to vote to choose your Member of Parliament.

It’s important to stress that these are two separate elections.

If you’re registered to vote in Oxfordshire County Council elections, you won’t need to register again for the General Election.

But if you missed the 13 April deadline to register for the County Elections you will need to be registered to vote by the end of Monday 22 May to take part in the General Election.
