Local elections 2023

Local, town and parish council elections will take place across the East Riding on Thursday, May 4, for 67 ward members and a number of town and parish councillors.

Here we focus on the candidates standing in the four Holderness wards – Mid Holderness, North Holderness, South East Holderness and South West Holderness.

The full list of candidates, including those standing in parish and town council elections, can be found at eastriding.gov.uk/elections.

This year, those who are eligible and wish to vote in person at a polling station will need to show an accepted form of photo ID, which can include a passport, driving licence or older person’s/disabled person’s bus pass.

Beverley and Holderness MP Graham Stuart said: “Great councils are the bedrock of our communities and make so many aspects of our lives better. I encourage everyone to take time to find out more about the councillors standing in our area. Find out what their priorities are, how they will pay for key services and what their views are on the issues that matter to you.

“Your vote is a chance to have your say about the type of place you want to live in. You get to influence how the money you pay in council tax each month is spent in our area. Then, if the council does something you don’t like, it gives you the right to complain.

“On Thursday, May 4, you can vote at your polling station between 7am-10pm. Please remember to bring photo ID as this will be required to vote and there is more information on East Riding Council’s website about what you need to bring. I hope that everyone will take the time to have their say.”
