Full list of candidates for County Council elections published.
A total of 219 candidates are to stand in this year's Buckinghamshire County Council elections taking place on Thursday, May 4th.
Across the County there are 49 seats (divisions) being contested, 17 in Aylesbury Vale, 16 in Wycombe, 9 in Chiltern and 7 in South Bucks.
Those finally elected will not only represent their local communities, but also make decisions about millions of pounds of public services right across Buckinghamshire, including support for vulnerable children, adults and older people, education, roads and transport, libraries and waste disposal.
County Returning Officer, Gill Quinton said that county councillors play a hugely valuable role in listening to residents, speaking up for them in debates and decision-making and representing their views.
"It's a massively important role and without local people stepping forward, we could not run the County Council. It's now up to residents to get involved and cast their votes. Every vote is important as it shows local people care about democracy and who they want to represent them.
"I wish all candidates the very best of luck," Gill added.
Polling stations will be open from 7.00am to 10.00pm on polling day itself. Votes will be counted and results declared on Friday May 5th.
