Every four years there is a county-wide election in which all 75 electoral divisions choose their representatives. Three divisions elect two councillors so Hampshire County Council has 78 Councillors.
Your County Councillors use local knowledge to help the Council make decisions on the essential services provided, including education, roads, social care, libraries and access to the countryside. They are a focus for residents who have concerns or want things done.
Ken Moon of the conservative party has won the Petersfield Butser by-election.
