Medway Council Election
2 May 2019

A full election to Medway council was held on 2 May 2019. It was the last full election to be held under the ward boundaries introduced in 2003.

A total of 174 candidates stood for seven parties, while a further 25 candidates stood as independents. Turnout across Medway was 31.3%.

For the first time since 2003, the Conservatives saw the size of their group decrease, with a net loss of three seats. However, they retained overall control of the council with 33 councillors.

Labour gained four seats, retaining their status as the official opposition on the council with 20 councillors.

Ukip lost three seats, leaving them without a presence on the council for the first time since 2014.

Two independent councillors were elected, marking the first electoral victory for independent candidates in Medway since 2011. However, despite both councillors being elected to represent the same ward, they decided against forming a formal council group and instead sat as independent members.
