The date of the next UK Parliamentary general election has not yet been announced.  The government of the day can decide when to call a general election.  The maximum term of a Parliament is five years from the day on which it first met.  The current Parliament first met on 17 December 2019 and will automatically dissolve on 17 December 2024, unless it has been dissolved sooner by the Queen.  Polling day would be expected to take place 25 days later.

Elmbridge Borough Council has 48 councillors. 16 councillors are elected by thirds, which means a third of the councillors are elected each year, in three years out of four. Each councillor serves for four years. Find out when a councillor's term of office expires.

Elections are usually held on the first Thursday of May each year. If a seat becomes vacant between scheduled elections, for example, because of the resignation or death of an elected representative, a by-election may be held.
