Democracy and elections
Democracy means that all Calderdale residents have the right to vote for the Councillor who they would like to run the Borough. These pages provide information about the election process, how to vote and the results of past elections.
Calderdale is divided into 17 wards which make up 2 parliamentary constituencies - Calder Valley and Halifax.
Your right to vote is personal - no-one should stop you from voting or interfere with your right to vote.
The electoral register lists everyone who has registered to vote and new regulations introduced in 2014 mean that the register will now be updated monthly.
