For Stronsay Community Council - results are available from the Related Downloads section, but please also note:

The Scheme of Orkney Community Councils 2007 stipulates:-

“where a Community Council consists of more than one island or parish and where each of those islands or parishes has more than ten electors entered on the current register of electors on the date of the Community Council election, one candidate from each island or parish should be elected in the first instance.  The candidate with the highest number of votes in each discrete island or parish will be elected.  Other vacancies for that Community Council will then be filled on a first past the post basis.”

Therefore the candidates with the highest number of votes for both Stronsay and Papa Stronsay have been elected with the other five places on Stronsay Community Council being filled on a first past the post basis.
