An election to Isle of Anglesey County Council took place on Thursday 5 May 2022 to elect all 35 members of Isle of Anglesey County Council. It was held on the same day as all other councils in Wales, as part of the 2022 Welsh local elections.

The election saw the amount of councillors elected to Isle of Anglesey County Council increase, from 30 to 35, as part of boundary changes to the council carried out by the Local Democracy and Boundary Commission for Wales.[1]

Plaid Cymru gained the council from no overall control, leading to the first administration formed of only political parties since the council's creation in 1996.[2]
