1892 United Kingdom local elections
The 1892 United Kingdom local elections took place throughout 1892. The elections were the second following the Local Government Act 1888 and Local Government (Scotland) Act 1889, which had established county councils and county borough councils in England, Wales, and Scotland. The election saw elections of members to these various new county councils.
The March elections saw Liberal Progressives strengthening their control of London County Council. The result had the effect of strengthening the opposition of some Conservatives to female suffrage, as a correlation between widening female suffrage and the Conservative defeat was read into the election.
