Map of the results of the 2010 Hackney council election. Conservatives in blue, Labour in red and Liberal Democrats in yellow.

Elections for London Borough of Hackney Council were held on Thursday 6 May 2010. The whole council was up for election. Hackney is split up into 19 wards, each electing 3 councillors, so a total of 57 seats were up for election.

Summary results[edit]

At the 2010 council election, Labour won five seats from the Conservatives. These included two in New River; two in Lordship and one in Springfield. A former Green Party seat (in Clissold) was also lost to Labour. The Conservatives remain the largest opposition party with four seats (down from nine in 2006).

The election attracted national attention when, along with some other constituencies in the country, up to 270 people failed to be issued with ballot papers by the deadline of 10pm. This meant that they could not vote, and residents were angry when turned away from polling stations. The Council apologised unreservedly, blaming the high turnout for the problem.[1]

  • Overall Turnout for the Election of Mayor: 58% (34.3% in 2006, 26.34% in 2002)
  • Result: Labour Hold

Under the Supplementary Vote system, if no candidate receives 50% of 1st choice votes, 2nd choice votes are added to the result for the top two 1st choice candidates. If a ballot gives a first and second preference to the top two candidates in either order, then their second preference is not counted, so that a second preference cannot count against a first.
