Forthcoming Elections and Referendums

UseYourVote Campaign

The information below sets out the range of elections and referendums scheduled to take place over the next four years. The UK’s next General Election, in which MPs are elected to Parliament, will take place in May 2020. This table has been adapted from information provided by the Electoral Commission at www.electoralcommission.org.uk. The Electoral Commission is an independent government funded body that oversees public elections in the UK, and ensures that all rules and regulations (for instance, about who can stand as a candidate, how political parties must respond when offered a donation, and how much a candidate or a party can spend during the period of an election in an attempt to win your vote) are followed. Local council websites are likely to provide precise details about the timing and regularity of local government elections.
