Now in its 26th year, it's that time again when the Local Government Chronicle Elections Centre publish their annual Local Elections Handbook.

The Local Elections Handbook 2010 is a detailed summary of voting and electoral statistics for 164 local authorities that went to the polls in 2010.

Compiled by the experts Colin Rallings and Michael Thrasher - who brought you British Electoral Facts published by Biteback in November last year - this is your one-stop statistical guide to local government in 2010.
