Over the last few months I’ve been publishing the local election results for Stockport from the first ever election to the new metropolitan authority in 1973 up to 2004.
Stockport Borough has 63 seats, 3 in each of the 21 wards. In a normal four year cycle, one seat in each ward is up for election each year, and then there are no elections in one year.
Sometimes (e.g. when the authority was first formed, or after major boundary changes such as in 2004) there are “all up” elections where all three seats are up in some – or all – of the wards.
All elections use the First Past the Post electoral system.
Here are links to all those results:
Wikipedia has all Stockport results from 1998 onwards, plus by-elections over the same period.Leave a comment
