Standing for the Kirkley ward, Peter Byatt is the Labour Party candidate, Gilly Gunner has been selected as the Conservative candidate, Dominic Leslie is standing for the Liberal Democrats, Phillip Trindall for the UK Independence Party (UKIP) and Ben Quail for the Green Party.
For the St Margarets ward, Nasima Begum is the Labour Party candidate, Linda Coulam has been selected as the Conservative candidate, Shaun Waters is standing for the Liberal Democrats, Bernie Guymer for the UK Independence Party (UKIP) and Baz Bemment for the Green Party.
The polls will take place next Thursday, November 16 between the hours of 7am and 10pm.
