Salford Local Election 2023 results announced

Salford’s local election 2023 results have been announced.

The political makeup of the council remains the same and is:

  • Labour: 49 seats
  • Conservative: eight seats
  • Liberal Democrats: two seats
  • Independent: one seat

One seat was up for election in each of the twenty wards in the city, but due to a councillor standing down in the Pendlebury and Clifton ward there were 21 seats up for election in total.

The turnout for the election was 24.20 per cent with 45,707 votes cast.

The polls closed at 10pm on Thursday 4 May and the verification and count took place at the AJ Bell Stadium overnight.

Returning Officer Tom Stannard made the announcements in each ward which was also livestreamed for people watching at home. The final ward was announced at approximately 2.55am.

Tom said: “I would like to thank our residents for voting in these elections and having their say on who they wanted to represent them in their area. I’d also congratulate the councillors who have been selected to represent their residents.

“These elections would not be possible without the support of all the staff at poll stations across the city, and everyone involved in implementing the new photo ID requirement and the people who have helped to verify the votes and count them.”
