7. Parish and town council elections

Town and parish council elections in East Devon are held every four years.  By-elections are held to fill any casual vacancies as and when they occur.

Town and parish councillors are elected for a term of four years and must seek re-election at the next full elections if they wish to remain in office. Any councillor elected mid-term as a result of a by-election must also seek re-election at the next full elections.
