2013 Elections:

Labour group leader, George Nobbs,  elected as County Council leader.

Following the result of the County Council election, in which no party gained an overall majority, there was something of an impasse concerning the appointment of a Council leader. In normal circumstances it  might be expected that the party with overall control would support one if its councillors as leader. However, with no single party having an overall majority, and none of the other parties supporting a Conservative councillor, (the party with the greatest number of representatives), as leader, it was proving impossible to make an appointment. The County Council was therefore unable to conduct normal business.

Eventually an alliance was formed between the Labour, Liberal Democrat and UKIP councillors. This allowed for the election of the Labour group leader - George Nobbs - as the new Council Leader.



County, borough, town and parish council elections take place every four years in West Norfolk.  The next Borough Council elections will take place 2015.

REFERENDUM.    There was also a national referendum held on the 5th. May 2011. The referendum sought to find out the views of the nation on the proposal to change our 'First Past the Post' system of elections to an 'Alternative Vote' system. The AV system aims to ensure that the elected person has more than 50% of the vote. See below for more information.


WEST NORFOLK - Referendum result

YES vote: 11,652
No   vote: 35,996

This result seems broadly to be similar to other declared results in the country as a whole.
(Updated at 6th May 8:16pm)
19.1 million votes,
42% of the electorate, were cast across the country -
68% voted NO.



To find out more about how to vote, how to register and so on, go to
The Electoral Commission

The Electoral Commission is an independent body set up by Parliament. It is responsible for the conduct and regulation of referenda held under the 'Political Parties, Elections and Referenda Act (2000)'.

What is the Alternative Vote?

The Alternative Vote (AV) is very much like First-Past-the-Post (FPTP). Like FPTP, it is used to elect representatives for single-member constituencies, except that rather than simply marking one solitary 'X' on the ballot paper, the voter has the chance to rank the candidates on offer.
The voter thus puts a '1' by their first-preference candidate, and can continue, if they wish, to put a '2' by their second-preference, and so on, until they don't care anymore or they run out of names. In some AV elections, such as most Australian elections, electors are required to rank all candidates.
If a candidate receives a majority of first-preference votes (more people put them as number one than all the rest combined), then they are elected.
If no candidate gains a majority on first preferences, then the second-preference votes of the candidate who finished last on the first count are redistributed. This process is repeated until someone gets over 50 per cent.


To see more information visit The Electoral Reform Society - where you may see a case for using AV.
