The Department of Infrastructure has suggested a date for next year’s local authority elections.

Commissioners across the Island are being asked if they have any problems with the polls opening on Thursday 23 April.

The provisional date has been put forward by the Local Government Unit, the central support and advice team for all the Island’s local authorities.

With boards in Castletown, Peel, Port Erin and Port St Mary voting to cut their numbers this term, there’ll be fewer representatives after April 2020.

Factoring in Douglas Council’s reduction from 18 to 12 councillors, and the merger between Arbory and Rushen, there’ll be 138 seats available across the Island.
