On 2 May 2013, all registered voters in North Yorkshire had the chance to vote in elections for North Yorkshire County Council.
The County Council has 72 members, each representing the residents of one electoral division. Elections for all 72 seats are held every four years.
County councillors act as advocates for their division and are there to help constituents who need advice or support. County councillors serve on the full council and sit on the area committee for their district.
Where can I view the results of the 2013 election?
Results will be published live on our results publication page during Friday 3 May 2013.

When is polling day?
The elections were held on Thursday, 2 May, 2013. Anyone who is 18 or over, eligible and registered to vote can take part. If you haven't yet registered to vote, you can find out how here. We will publish a list of polling stations on this website when they are announced.
What if I am in the armed forces?
North Yorkshire has a large population of armed forces personnel. To vote in the county council elections, personnel must be registered locally. Forces personnel that are registered to vote but will be abroad at the time of the election, or will not be able to vote in person for another reason, can apply to vote by post or by proxy.
What if I have just moved to a new home?
Electoral registers are updated by district councils each autumn. If you have moved house since the register was last updated, you will need to register to vote again. Otherwise you may not be able to vote. Find out more here.
When and where will results be announced?
Votes will be counted on Friday, 3 May, 2013. The counts will take place in each district and will be administered by your district council on our behalf.
Results will be announced on Friday, 3 May, and will appear on this website as soon as they are known, and we will also publish them on Twitter with the hashtag: #nyelection2013.
