Representing local people
Community council elections 2019
The deadline for nominations to election to the 45 active Community Councils in the City of Edinburgh was 4pm on 30 September 2019. Following review by Returning Officers and the Election Team, 44 of these Community Councils will be established. One of the Community Councils - Wester Hailes - will not be established as there were too few valid nominations received by the Returning Officer. For one of the Community Councils, Queensferry and District, there were more nominations received than there are vacancies on the council. As a result a poll will be held to choose the 9 successful candidates. The link to vote and Notice of Poll is provided below.
