Wiltshire Council elections date from 2009, when the new Wiltshire Council was created, although a shadow authority had been in existence since 2008.

As a result of the 2009 structural changes to local government in England, the former Wiltshire County Council and the four districts within its geographical area were replaced by Wiltshire Council, a unitary authority covering the same area, with elections continuing to be held every four years, beginning on 4 June 2009, when they coincided with an election to the European Parliament.

Previously, Wiltshire County Council had been elected between 1889 and 2005, initially every three years, later every four years.
