LiveNottinghamshire County Council elections 2021 LIVE: Who are the new councillors in Bassetlaw?

Bassetlaw residents are set to find out who has been elected to represent them at Nottinghamshire County Council for the next four years.

Friday, 7th May 2021, 10:06 am

Polling stations were open all day yesterday (Thursday, May 6) giving people the chance to choose who they want as their Bassetlaw councillor.

Notinghamshire is currently governed by a coalition between the Conservative Party and the Independents- a result of a poor showing for Labour as mining communities deattached from traditional political parties in 2017.

Two interesting seats this year will be Retford East and Retford West.

Let the count begin!

In 2017, Conservative Steve Vickers was elected for Retord East with 1,328 votes, while Labour's Pam Skelding lost out by just 37 votes with 1,291.

Conservative Mike Quigley was elected with 1,411 votes in Retford West, followed close behind by Labour's Darrell Eduard Pulk with 1,357 votes.

There are nine County Council seats up for grabs in Bassetlaw, but we’ll be announcing the results in full on our live blog – so keep checking back as they come in.

The count begins at 10am.
