Community Council Elections

Humbie, East & West Saltoun and Bolton

Your chance to get involved

The next community council elections to the 20 community councils across East Lothian are due to take place this autumn, following their postponement last year. Nomination papers will be issued on Monday 30th August with the deadline for lodging nominations being 4pm on Thursday 16th September.

In situations where there are more nominees than the number of seats available, the elections will take the form of a postal ballot. The East Lothian Council’s elections team will be providing their expertise in managing this part of the process. 

The publication of notice of poll and statement of nominees will take place on Tuesday 21 September with the ballots closing on Thursday 7 October at 12 noon.
