Details on how to register can be found on the Council’s website here.

If you have registered, you will receive a poll card with more information during April.

Since the last elections, the number of County Councillors to be elected in Flintshire has reduced from 70 to 67.  Some boundaries have changed which means that you may now be in a different county electoral ward (the ward that the County Councillor represents).  Please check the information on your poll card as ward names may have changed and in some areas your polling station may have changed too.

Councillors are elected by people in their community to represent them and make decisions on their behalf. Being a Councillor is rewarding, challenging and enjoyable and you can change people’s lives for the better.  

Flintshire’s Returning Officer, Neal Cockerton, said:

“It’s important that councillors represent all the different views of their community – that’s why we want to encourage people from diverse backgrounds to become a councillor.”

Local government needs more councillors who are under 40, female, disabled, LGBTQ+ and black or asian or from other minority groups and from a range of beliefs, cultures and personal circumstances. All councils have signed Diverse Council pledges ahead of the elections and are committed to encouraging and supporting more diverse people to stand for election.
