2019 Italian local elections
The 2019 Italian local elections will be held on different dates; most on 26 May 2019, together with the 2019 European election, with a second round on 9 June. Direct elections will be held in 3,843 out of 7,918 municipalities; in each of these, mayor and members of the City Council are going to be elected. Of the 3,841 municipalities, 30 are provincial capitals.
All mayoral elections in Italy in cities with a population higher than 15,000 use the same voting system. Under this system, voters express a direct choice for the mayor or an indirect choice voting for the party of the candidate's coalition. If no candidate receives at least 50% of votes, the top two candidates go to a second round after two weeks. This gives a result whereby the winning candidate may be able to claim majority support, although it is not guaranteed.
The election of the City Council is based on a direct choice for the candidate with a preference vote: the candidate with the majority of the preferences is elected. The number of seats for each party is determined proportionally.
Majority of each coalition in the comuni which have a population higher than 15,000 inhabitants:
|Independents and civic lists||25|
|Five Star Movement||3|
