About elections

District, Parish and Town, and County Council elections are held every 4 years. Parliamentary elections for MPs are held every 5 years. All use the first-past-the-post (FPTP) electoral system.

Epping Forest District Council votes by thirds, this means that a third of councillors are elected every year over a 4 year cycle (with no district elections in the fourth year).
