Polling stations

Local and Mayoral Elections 2024: Candidates running for councillor roles and the Mayor of Salford released.

For Salfordians there will be the chance to vote in three elections on May 2, these being for local councillors, the Mayor of Salford and the Mayor of Greater Manchester.

Residents have until Tuesday April 16 to register to vote. Polling stations will open at 7am on Thursday May 2 and close at 10pm.

Salford’s current council is labour controlled with 49 out of 60 councillors; both mayoral roles are equally labour held.

Along with being decisive for who will govern in Salford, the upcoming local elections will surely provide insight into the general election which will take place sometime later this year.
