1848 Liverpool Town Council election

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Elections to Liverpool Town Council were held on Wednesday 1 November 1848, with the exception of Castle Street and Scotland wards where the elections were held on 2 November because the Aldermen for these wards were not able to act as returning officers. One third of the council seats were up for election, the term of office of each councillor being three years.

Eight of the sixteen wards were uncontested.

This was the first year that the local press referred to "Liberals" rather than "Reformers"

The main issue at this election was whether the Corporation estate and the docks should be subject to Rates (tax).

After the election, the composition of the council was:

Party Councillors   ±   Aldermen Total
Conservative 33 0 15 48
Reformers 15 0 1 16

Election result

  Conservative 10 4 4 0 62% 60% 1,826
  Whig 6 4 4 0 38% 40% 1,218

Because half of the wards were uncontested, these statistics should be taken in that context.
