Candidates standing in Leeds City Council election May 3 2018. The major difference is that you will be able to vote for three councillors. This is because Leeds City Council has recently been through a ward boundary review and some ward boundaries have changed. There have always been three councillors per ward, but in past elections you’ve only needed to vote for one at a time. The May 3 2018 vote in Leeds is what is termed as an “all-out” election, as all 99 local council seats will be contested https://leedsstar.co.uk/politics/candidates-standing-in-leeds-city-council-election-may-3-2018/
