Members are elected every four years to represent the Community council area.
If there are less candidates than seats, no election will be held. If the membership of the community council falls to less than half, then the Community Council will not operate until there are enough members. Interim elections take place annually in the event of members having left the council for any reason (eg deceased, moved away, resigned etc)
The Highland Council is responsible for running the elections.
