Daventry District Council Elections

Daventry District Council is composed of 36 councillors, each chosen to represent a defined ward by their electors.  Elections are held by thirds, which means that one third of the seats are subject to re-election in each of three successive years, with County Council elections held every fourth year. There are 16 electoral wards in the district. 

If a local councillor resigns or dies the 'seat' becomes vacant and a by-election may be called to find a replacement. A by-election can happen at any time provided the vacancy occurs at least six months before the date for normal elections.

The political make-up of Daventry District Council following the most recent Local Elections on 3 May 2018 is 30 Conservative, 5 Labour, and 1 Lib Dem.
