Map showing results of English and Northern Irish local elections, 2014. Council control in England and in Northern Ireland the largest parties are shown (where all councils had no overall control). Black represents No Overall Control, white represents areas that did not hold an election, blue represents the Conservative Party, red represents the Labour Party and gold represents the Liberal Democrats. Areas in light red represent the Democratic Unionist Party. Dark green represents Sinn Féin and light green represents the SDLP. Areas shown in grey are outside England and Northern Ireland

All registered electors (British, Irish, Commonwealth and European Union citizens) who were aged 18 or over on the day of the election were entitled to vote in the local elections.

The BBC's projected national vote share (PNV) put Labour on 31%, the Conservatives on 29%, UKIP on 17%, and the Liberal Democrats on 13%.[1] Rallings and Thrasher of Plymouth University's national equivalent vote share (NEV) estimated 31% for Labour, 30% for the Conservatives, 18% for UKIP, and 11% for the Liberal Democrats.[2]

For the fourth year running, the Labour Party enjoyed the largest share of the vote in local elections, but its share of the vote was its smallest since 2010. UKIP, which topped the same day's European Parliament elections, finished third in vote share, claiming council seats from Labour, the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats.

Councils whose control changed hands highlighted thus

Harrow's Council was elected in 2010 with a Labour majority but divisions within this majority in 2013 led to a coalition struck between the Conservatives and the Independent Labour Group (formed of eight ex-Labour councillors). Conservatives withdrew their support for Independent Labour on 16 September 2013 leading to a brief Conservative minority administration.

Metropolitan boroughs


One third of the seats in all 36 Metropolitan Boroughs were up for election (showing those elected and each party's total in the new council).

Electoral administration


Eligibility to vote

All registered electors (British, Irish, Commonwealth and European Union citizens) who were aged 18 or over on the day of the election were entitled to vote in the local elections. Those who were temporarily away from their ordinary address (for example, away working, on holiday, in student accommodation or in hospital) were also entitled to vote in the local elections,[14] although those who have moved abroad and registered as overseas electors cannot vote in the local elections. Those who were registered to vote at more than one address (such as a university student who has a term-time address and lives at home during holidays) were entitled to vote in the local elections at each address, as long as they were not in the same local government area.[15][16]

Enacting legislation


These elections were held on 22 May 2014 as provided by 'The Local Elections (Ordinary Day of Elections in 2014) Order 2013' (S.I. 2013/2277).[12][17][18][19]
