Ward councillors can help you resolve local issues and can represent your views on the council. Read more about their roles, how to contact or find out who your ward councillor is and how to contact a party group office. Also you can find out about the register of interests of ward councillors.
Ward councillors represent the electors (voting residents) of a ward and sit on East Riding of Yorkshire Council. They can help you resolve local issues and can represent your views on the council. Ward councillors are also required to sign up to the Local Code of Conduct and, in doing so, pledge to observe the requirements contained within it.
A ward is part of the overall area governed by a local authority (e.g. a council). Wards are usually named after neighbourhoods, parishes, landmarks, geographical features, and in some cases historical figures connected to an area.

The council area is divided into 26 wards, each of which is represented by one or more councillors (also known as members ie members of the council) elected for a term of four years. Unlike some other areas, in the East Riding we elect all 67 of our councillors at the same time.
