Local Government by-elections
The Highland Council is divided into 21 Wards and elections are administered, centrally, through the Election Office.
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.
