Voters will go to the polls to elect 26 councillors in eight multi-member wards on Thusday, May 4.
Successful candidates will serve a five-year term as councillors.
The elections will be conducted using the single transferable voting system, which enables electors to choose for more than one candidate by ranking them in order of preference on the ballot paper using the number 1, 2, 3 and so on.
The count for all eight wards will take place in Elgin Town Hall on Friday, May 5.
