All 101 seats on Birmingham City Council are up for grabs at this year’s local elections

Voters from Birmingham’s 69 wards will head to polling booths to choose their local councillor on Thursday, May 5.

With the count taking place overnight the results will be delivered the morning of Friday, May 6.

Labour currently hold a strong majority in the city with 65 out of the 101 seats. Conservative councillors form the opposition with 27 seats, while the Liberal Democrats hold eight and the Green Party holds one. In total there are nearly 400 people standing for election.

As ever, the results of local elections often reflect how the country feels about politics happening on a national level, so issues like the Ukrainian crisis, party-gate, and the cost-of-living crisis are expected to have a significant impact.

On a more local level, issues affecting Birmingham such as bins, transport and education are also expected to influence voters. Both Labour and the Tories appear to be placing a lot of stock in cleaning up Birmingham’s streets.

Some key seats that were neck and neck in Birmingham’s last local election in 2018 include Quinton, where less than 100 votes separated Conservative candidate Georgina Chandler and eventual winner John Clancey of Labour, and Garrets Green, where the Liberal Democrats’ Carol Jones lost out to Labour’s Saddak Miah by just 137 votes.

One seat to be blown wide open is Holyhead, which will be officially relinquished by the new MP for Erdington Cllr Paulette Hamilton on May 5.

All seats are up for election, so that means all cabinet members and the leader himself will be out campaigning with the hundreds of other candidates over the next few weeks. See below for a full list of every candidate standing in the Birmingham local election:
