Elections and voting

Every four years the County Council holds an election for all of its electoral divisions

County councillors use local knowledge to help the Council make decisions on the essential services provided to its residents and communities.

On Thursday 4 May 2017, Hampshire voters will choose their representative on Hampshire County Council.

The list of candidates standing for election can be found via the Statements of Persons Nominated. Please note that it is the responsibility of individual candidates to raise awareness of their own policies and campaign material.
