Upcoming council by elections

 MiddleEnglander does a great job again of collating the information.

There are 20 by-elections remaining during March, 5 already in April with 1 in May as well as an additional 19 vacancies where there is no date as yet for the by-election although many if not most of these will be contested on 22nd May.

There are also two by-elections towards the end of March for the Common Council of the Corporation of London, but as the Council is non-partisan they are not included in this list of elections and vacancies.
