Ulverston Town Council

The by-election will be held on the same day as the district elections on 3 May 2018.
After the deadline for submitting nominations at an election, if there are fewer candidates than there are spaces on the council then the election is not contested. Those candidates are then elected onto the parish council unopposed. All the elections below are not being contested on 3 May 2018.
