Petitions for Elected Mayoral referendums

By law the Council has to say how many people have to sign a petition for there to be a vote on whether the Metropolitan Brough of Sefton should have an elected mayor.

The minimum number of signatures, being 5% of the people allowed to vote in a Borough Council election, based on the Electorate  on the 15 February 2024 is 10,592

If you have any questions about petitions for an elected mayor, please contact Electoral Services at
