Municipal elections took place in Iceland on 26 May 2018.[1][2] 55 of the 72 municipal councils in the country were elected using open list PR.[3] The rural municipality Tjörneshreppur did not hold an election as only one list was presented, whose candidates were thereby automatically elected.[4] No list was presented in 16 municipalities. Municipal councils in those municipalities were elected using a form of plurality block voting were voters write in the names of their preferred candidates.[5] Two of the municipal councils were for new municipalities created after mergers.[6]
