2016 Trinidadian local elections
On Monday November 28, 2016, local elections were held in Trinidad, the bigger of the two main islands of Caribbean island state Trinidad and Tobago. The elections were held slightly more than one month later than originally planned. They were held to select the membership of 14 local authorities, with representatives elected from 137 single-member districts across the country. The entire membership of Trinidad's local government was renewed as a result of these elections, with the previous set of local representatives having been elected in 2013. The elections came roughly a year following the 2015 parliamentary general election.
Local elections were not held in Tobago, which has an autonomous legislative chamber - the Tobago House of Assembly - in lieu of traditional forms of local government. Elections to the Tobago House of Assembly were held in 2017.
