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. 

Please note that Local elections scheduled for Daventry District in May 2019 were postponed by the Government in the light of plans to restructure councils in Northamptonshire.

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 Local Elections on 3 May 2018 is 30 Conservative, 5 Labour, and 1 Lib Dem.
