Council Services:

YOUR chance to have YOUR say

Vote on 4 May - Election Day - and help shape Lincolnshire County Council services for the next four years

Do you care about the state of the county’s roads? The quality of our schools? How social care is provided?

Hand putting X into ballot box

Whatever matters to you, please make sure you have your say in who runs the council for the next four years. There will be 70 elected councillors,each one representing an electoral division in Lincolnshire.

The candidate getting most votes in each division will represent all the people in that area.

Together, the 70 elected councillors will also prioritise and choose the way important services are delivered up to at least 2021.

Their decisions will affect everyone in the county, including you - whatever age you are, and wherever you live!
