County Council elections happen every 4 years. For these elections, the Waveney district area is divided into electoral areas called 'county divisions', and electors are asked to vote for a representative (or in some cases 2 representatives) for their division.
The divisions in Waveney and the number of councillors representing them is shown below:
- Beccles - 2 councillors

To find out which county division you live in, you can use the independently run 'write to them' service which allows you to enter your post-code and search for your current councillors. The name of your division is shown in the first line of the County Council section where it says 'Your ***** County Councillor is'. Alternatively you can contact the Waveney Elections Office on 01502 523238 or by email , and they can advise you which division you live in.
Further information about your current County Councillor(s) can be found on the Suffolk County Council website.
