Elections in 2021
An election for the next Yorkshire Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner (PFCC) was due to be held on Thursday 7 May 2020, but was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. These elections will now be held on Thursday 6 May 2021 and combined with the North Yorkshire County Council Elections.
PFCCs are elected every four years and are elected representatives who oversee a police force and fire service area. There will be one PFCC elected for all of North Yorkshire.
North Yorkshire County Councillors are also elected every four years. There are 72 County Councillors, each representing the residents of the county's electoral divisions. More information about current North Yorkshire County Councillors can be found here.
On the same day there will also be by-elections for the Camblesforth and Carlton District Ward, and for Church Fenton Parish Council.
It's never too early to apply for an absent vote for the forthcoming elections - you can do so by filling in a postal vote application form and sending it to the Council's Electoral Registration Team.
