The Norfolk County Council election took place across Norfolk on 2 May 2013, coinciding with local elections for all county councils in England. The results were announced the following day, Friday 3 May 2013. The result brought to an end 12 years of Conservative Party rule, who finished three seats short of a majority after losing 20 seats. UKIP and the Labour Party both made gains of 14 and 11 seats respectively. The Liberal Democrats and the Green Party both lost three seats each, while an independent won a single seat in North Coast.

All locally registered electors (British, Irish, Commonwealth and European Union citizens) who were aged 18 or over on Thursday 2 May 2013 were entitled to vote in the local elections. Those who were temporarily away from their ordinary address (for example, away working, on holiday, in student accommodation or in hospital) were also entitled to vote in the local elections,[1] although those who had moved abroad and registered as overseas electors cannot vote in the local elections. It is possible to register to vote at more than one address (such as a university student who had a term-time address and lives at home during holidays) at the discretion of the local Electoral Register Office, but it remains an offence to vote more than once in the same local government election.[2]

Council Leader Election, 27th May 2013[edit]

After the Council rejected Borrett's nomination, a "loose" alliance was formed between Labour, UKIP & the Liberal Democrats with support from the Green Party and an Independent councillor. Under the agreement, the previous cabinet system would be abolished and replaced by a committee system which would allow decisions to be made by all councillors. Under the agreement Labour councillor George Nobbs was nominated to be Leader.[18] On 24 May he was elected by a vote of 42 to 38.[19]
