“The importance of voting also has added poignancy at this election as we mark 100 years since the struggles and sacrifices of the Suffrage movement saw the first women in the UK win the right to vote.

“We know residents are always incredibly passionate about their city and their communities so I would urge everyone to use their vote and not miss this chance to get out to the polling stations to have a say on the issues which matter to them.”

Ahead of this election, the council has been run by Labour, with 58 members, followed by 19 Conservative councillors, nine Liberal Democrats, five Morley Borough Independents, three Green Party members, two Garforth and Swillington Independents, two East Leeds Independents and one further Independent.
