Under The Isle of Anglesey (Electoral Arrangements) Order 2012, thirty seats (a reduction from the previous 40) were created, from eleven (previously 40) electoral divisions, by the Local Government Boundary Commission for Wales.[3]

Overall results

Turnout for the election was 50.5% of eligible voters.[4] Independent councillors won more seats than any other group, but Plaid Cymru made strong gains, saying they would find it difficult to work with the independent group and hoped to form an alliance with Labour.[4] The island's Returning Officer described democracy on the island as being "invigorated".[4]
