Anyone who lives within the Community Council area and whose name is on the electoral roll can be nominated or can apply to become a Community Councillor.
There are also places for young people aged 16 and 17 years and other co-options are allowed.
Community Council Elections are held in October on a 3 year basis on dates, determined by a Returning Officer nominated by Aberdeen City Council. The next election will be in October this year, 2018.
In addition to election, members can be co-opted to the council as the term of office progresses.
