Community Council elections follow a three year cycle. In 2016 a full election process took place for South Ayrshire Community Councils, whereby existing Community Councillors stepped down and new members had the opportunity to take up office.

At the full elections an additional Community Council was established in Minishant, and during the year 2017/18 a further Community Council was established in Tarbolton which takes the current number of active Community Councils to 27.

Two Annual By-Elections have taken place in Feb/March 2017 and Feb/March 2018 to fill vacancies. The results of all Community Council Elections for the current term are shown below. Full elections will take place again in early 2019.
