The 2022 Preston City Council election is currently taking place as of 5 May 2022 to elect members of Preston City Council.[1] happened on the same day as other local elections.

Council elections for the Preston City Council were last held in 2021 as part of the 2021 United Kingdom local elections. The council underwent a wholesale boundary revision in 2020, reducing the number of both Councillors and electoral wards, resulting in the first 'all out' election since 2002 Preston Council election.

All locally registered electors (British, Irish, Commonwealth and European Union citizens) who are aged 18 or over on polling day are entitled to vote in the local elections.
