Specific comments made about this task

Birmingham City Council
Buried at the bottom of /election, with information about Croatia at the top; /voting is a potentially redundant page

Birmingham City Council
Getting to the elections page was easy, but there was nothing about when the next scheduled elections might be

Birmingham City Council
I found the date of the next election from an internal search which took me to an election results page, almost as a footnote. I wouldn't expect to find the date of the next election on the page about past elections. Couldn't find any information by navigating.

Brent Council
Only May 2014 mentioned, there is no mention of next election date, not even a probable year for next election. "V"? LOL

Buckinghamshire County Council
Easy to find links to last election results but nowhere could I find the next election date.

Calderdale Council
have every other piece of information about elections availible excluding when the next one is held...

Carlisle City Council
The information does not appear to be on the website - there is a link saying "find out when the next elections are" but it doesn't tell you when you get to the page. Some information is out of date ("the next County elections are in 2013").The elections results link doesn't take you to the 2014 election results - they are on a separate page. Google didn't help until, on a whim, I put in elections 2015 and found the following link, which, if you scroll right down, shows that there will be an election in Carlisle in 2015: http://www.gwydir.demon.co.uk/uklocalgov/elec2015.htm

Cheshire East Council
Shows last election results, but not when the next elections are.

Coventry City Council
All of these search methods were easy. They were straight forward and basic as there wasn't alot of scrolling or clicking involved. I had no problems with it.

Dumfries and Galloway Council
only issue is the site should account for search term spelling errors and suggest what they might have meant

Great Yarmouth Borough Council
A-Z error message

Lambeth Council
Don't think this info exists on Lambeth. The Election guide is referring to 22 May, which has already passed.

Liverpool City Council
it's very easy to find links to last election results and information about elections, but nowhere could I find the next election date.

Monmouthshire County Council
I could not find information about the next Council Election but there were two notices about two single seat elections. I assume the date of the next Council elections has not yet been formally announced. I rated Readability "difficult" because I had to open the notice to find the date information. This was slow on my laptop. It would have been easier if the date had actually been on the web page

Surrey County Council
No information on the site about when the next council elections are. Landing page strapline says find out about upcoming elections, but no information is given on the content page.

Surrey County Council
There was no information about when the next council elections are. Council Elections was not in the A-Z

Walsall Council
Go to elections pages easily but could see anything obvious about the next election
