Future elections

Future elections will be taking place as follows:

Election date Election type
Thursday 6 May 2021 Local Government election*, Salford City Mayor election and election of Mayor for Greater Manchester+

* The 2021 Local Government elections will be ‘all out’ elections where all 60 councillor seats will be up for election due to a review of ward boundaries having been undertaken in 2018/19.

+ The second Greater Manchester mayoral election will be held on Thursday 6 May 2021 to elect the Mayor of Greater Manchester. The election will take place the same day as council elections within the city-region- including the election for the Mayor of Salford- as well as elections across England and Wales.

There will be Salford City Council elections in 2022 - The Salford (Electoral Changes) Order 2019 determines when the councillors retire, notwithstanding the fact that the 2020 all out elections are delayed until 2021. This position is confirmed by the postponement regulations.
