The democratic make up:
Doncaster Metropolitan Borough is divided into 21 areas known as wards and each ward (depending on its size) is represented by 2 or 3 democratically elected councillors, also known as elected Members.
The Local Government Boundary Commission for England recently reviewed the Council’s electoral arrangements. As well as making changes to some ward boundaries it also agreed the number of Councillors should be reduced from 63 to 55 and agreed that all 55 seats would be contested at the May 2015 election. Previously Councillors were elected by thirds with 21 of the 63 Councillors being elected annually and a Mayoral election taking place on the 4th year.
Following the May 2017 elections the political make up of the Council is as follows:
- Labour 44 Councillors plus the elected Mayor,
- Conservatives 7,
- Mexborough First 3,
- Independent/not affiliated to a party 2.
The Mayor and all Councillors elected in May 2017 will serve a 4 year period of office.
