Local Government by-elections
The Highland Council is divided into 22 Wards (21 Wards after 2016), and elections are administered, centrally, through the Election Office. The last Council election took place on Thursday 3 May 2012. Voting at the election is by the Single Transferable Vote.
A By Election can occur due to a vacancy caused by the death or resignation of an elected representative. It can take place during any of the standard Election cycles, and is subject to the timetable for normal elections. The votes casted in a by-election are counted manually.
