Candidates for District Council elections

The candidates who are seeking election to South Cambridgeshire District Council have been published, after the deadline for nominations closed.

Residents will go to the polls on Thursday 3 May. All seats on the Council will be up for election. The total number of seats on the Council will be 45. This is a reduction from the current number of 57, after new wards were established by the independent Local Government Boundary Commission for England.

If you know you are already registered to vote, then you don’t need to register again.
