On Thursday 6 May 2021, residents in Portsmouth will go to the polls to have their say on who represents them at the City Council and Police & Crime Commissioner elections.

The elections will take place at a time when Covid-19 continues to present risks to public health. Depending on the infection rate, measures taken to control the spread of the virus may change as we approach May. This means we cannot currently answer all the questions you may have about how the election will be run. However, we are working hard with the Electoral Commission, the wider electoral community and public health authorities to help ensure you can stay safe when casting your vote in May. You can find more details about this election on our Local Elections 2021 page.

We will update this page with more information as it becomes available. Further information can also be found on the website of the Electoral Commission .
