2011 Norwegian local elections

Nationwide local elections for seats in municipality and county councils were held throughout Norway on 12 September 2011.[1] Several municipalities also opened the polling booths on 11 September.[1] For polling stations this meant that two elections, the municipal elections and the county elections ran concurrently. In addition, an advisory referendum was held in Aust-Agder to determine whether to merge the county with Vest-Agder.

Overall, the Conservative Party made the greatest gains, and the Labour Party also advanced and remained the largest party. On the other hand, the Progress Party and the Socialist Left Party suffered severe setbacks.[2]

Term of office was 1 January 2012 until 31 December 2015.
