Future elections

Bracknell Forest Council elections

Unlike some other local authorities in Berkshire, who elect their councils by ‘thirds', Bracknell Forest holds ‘all out’ borough elections. These happen every 4 years and are combined with elections to the six parish/town councils in the borough.

The next combined borough/parish elections are on 2 May 2019.

Parliamentary elections

The Fixed Term Parliaments Act 2011, states that the polling day for each parliamentary general election is to be the first Thursday in May, every five years after 2015. There are some exceptions and, should these arise, details will be posted on this website.

European Parliamentary elections

Bracknell Forest Borough and the Bracknell Constituency, are part of the South East Region for European elections. The region returns a total of 10 Members to the European Parliament (MEPs).

European Parliamentary Elections take place every 5 years. The next one is in 2019, although whether or not the UK will hold elections will be dependent on the date the UK leaves the EU.

Parish and Town Council elections

Parish and Town Council elections occur every four years (and are combined with the Borough Council elections). 

The next combined Borough/Parish elections are on 2 May 2019.

Police and Crime Commissioner elections

The most recent Police and Crime Commissioner election took place on 5 May 2016.

PCC’s are elected every 4 years and the next elections will take place in May 2020.
