Elections and Voting
Elections are a democratic process where citizens aged 18 and over elect political candidates to represent them and their interests locally, nationally or internationally.
All elections held within the Lancaster district - local, general, mayoral and European elections - are organised and administered by Lancaster City Council.

When looking at the results for multi member wards, it will appear that more votes were cast than there were ballot papers issued.
This is because, in a two seat ward such as Bare, electors may vote for up to two candidates. In a three seat ward such as Bulk, electors may vote for up to three candidates.
Not everyone will do this though - some electors might only vote for one candidate.
