Future elections

UK Parliamentary General Election - The date of the next UK General Election has not yet been announced. The maximum term of a Parliament is 5 years. The next UK Parliamentary General Election must be held by January 2025, but it could happen at any point before then. 

New parliamentary constituency boundaries will will be used for the next general election. These changes are after the independent Boundary Commission for England (BCE) completed its review of parliamentary constituency boundaries

However, if a parliamentary by election is called before then, it would be run on current (old) boundaries. 

Cornwall Council and Town and Parish Council Elections - The full council elections are held every four years. They are next due in May 2025. 

By-elections and referendums - When these polls occur, we will update this web page with the official notices. These notices should also be displayed locally on public notice boards.
