Local elections 2022: What time are the council election results in Wales expected?

On May 5, elections are being held to elect the councillors who will serve on Wales’ 22 councils. In total, there are 1,254 up for grabs. Counting is not taking place overnight but the following day, on Friday, May 6.

This year, there are some places you will be able to vote in the days before as part of an early voting trial, and we know that in 70 wards in different parts of Wales, the councillors have already been automatically elected as no-one stood against them. You can read about that here.

Wales’ councils deliver over 700 local services, including education and school transport, housing, social services, highways and transport, waste management, leisure services, consumer protection, environmental health, planning, economic development and emergency planning.
