The election will be held on May 22nd.

YT will be bringing you comprehensive coverage on the issues, policies, candidates in each ward.

Sixty-four people will be contesting 16 seats when Thurrock hosts its local elections on Thursday, 22 May.

Four wards – Chafford and North Stifford, Corringham and Fobbing, East Tilbury, and Stanford-le-Hope West – will not have local elections, but voters can still go to the polls for the European elections on the same date.

Locally, Labour and Conservative parties are defending eight seats and both – along with the UK Independence Party – are fighting all 16 wards.

Candidates: Conservative 16, Labour 16, UKIP 16, Liberal Democrat 14, National Front 2.

Three current councillors are not standing for re-election this May – Conservatives Wendy Herd and Mike Revell and Labour’s Martin Healy.

Voters can register to vote until Tuesday, 6 May and postal vote applications should be received by 5pm on Wednesday, 7 May. Applications to register to vote by proxy can be made until 5pm on 14 May.

On polling day the stations will be open from 7am until 10pm and the local election count will be made that night.

As many European countries hold their polls on Sundays, the European election count will be held on Sunday, 25 May.
