Local elections in the United Kingdom are scheduled to be held on Thursday 2 May 2019, contesting about 270 English local councils, six directly elected mayors in England, and all 11 local councils in Northern Ireland. Additionally, there will be by-elections for a number of local authority seats.
With the exception of those areas that have had boundary changes, the seats up for election in England were last contested in the 2015 local elections, and thus on the same day as the General Election from that year.
