The reform of local governments has reduced the number of councils from 26 to 11. You can find your new council or electoral ward by inputting your postal code on this site

Voting

Council elections use the single transferable vote electoral system. Different amounts of candidates are elected in each council constituency depending on its size. Voters should number candidates on the ballot paper in order of preference.
If you agree that the Green Party offers the best policies and the best hope of a new approach to politics in Northern Ireland, please place the number ‘1‘ next to the Green candidate. Remember, a Green vote is never a wasted vote.
All our candidates have a realistic chance of being elected – if they are not, your vote can still influence the outcome by transferring to your second preference candidate and you have sent a clear message to the other parties that you are fed up with business as usual.

If you are not registered to vote, visit www.eoni.org.uk to find out how to get on the register. If you are not originally from Belfast, but live there for most of the year, please consider registering to vote at the address where you spend most time.
