IT'S the biggest election in Dudley for 20 years with all 72 seats on the local authority up for grabs.

The ruling Conservative group will be looking to retain control but Labour are hoping for gains to hand them control of the council.

The Lib Dems hope to increase their numbers in the council chamber while independent candidates could hold the balance of power in a hung council.

Voting will take place on May 2 and results will be declared throughout the following day.

The Local Democracy Reporting Service will be at the count posting results on X as they are declared.

Here are all the candidates for each ward.
