Notice of Elections in Borough of Scarborough



Scarborough Borough Council have issued notices for its borough and parish elections, which will take place on Thursday 7 May.

All borough and parish council seats are up for election. Nomination packs are now available for anyone who wishes to stand as a candidate in one of the 25 Scarborough Borough Council wards or one of the 39 parish councils in the borough.  Existing councillors wishing to continue to be councillors will need to complete a pack to be able to stand for election again.

Packs can be obtained by:

  • Downloading from www.scarborough.gov.uk/elections
  • Emailing electors@scarborough.gov.uk
  • Calling the Elections Office Monday to Friday between normal office hours (8.30am to 5.00pm) on 01723 232309
  • Writing to Electoral Services, Town Hall, St Nicholas Street, Scarborough YO11 2HG 
  • Visiting one of the Customer First centres at St Nicholas Street, Scarborough, Skinner Street, Whitby or John Street, Filey (note:  limited amount available in each of these centres)


The deadline for returning completed nomination papers is 4pm on Thursday 9 April and they must be returned to:  The Returning Officer, Town Hall, St Nicholas Street, Scarborough YO11 2HG. Nomination papers cannot be handed in at Filey or Whitby.

The notice of the General Election won't be issued until after Parliament is dissolved on 30 March but it is due to be held on 7 May, the same day as the borough and parish elections.

Anyone not on the register of electors will not be able to vote in any of the elections.

There is still time for people to register and this can be done easily online at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote before the deadline of Monday 20 April. Alternatively, people can contact the council’s Elections team for assistance.

Anyone who will be on holiday on 7 May can apply to vote by post or proxy, which is someone that can vote on their behalf but at the named elector's usual polling station.

More information about this can be found on the council’s website www.scarborough.gov.uk/elections

The deadline for applying to vote by post is 5.00pm, Tuesday 21 April.  Postal votes will be issued from that day onwards. The deadline for applying to vote by proxy is 5.00pm, Tuesday 28 April.
