In 1919 triennial elections to the London County Council resumed. The elections due in 1916 had been postponed due to the First World War, and vacancies had been filled by co-option.

The size of the council was increased to 124 councillors and 20 aldermen from 1919. The councillors were elected for electoral divisions corresponding to the new parliamentary constituencies that had been created by the Representation of the People Act 1918.
