Hertfordshire County Council is the upper-tier local authority for the non-metropolitan county of Hertfordshire, in England, the United Kingdom. After the 2021 election, it consists of 78 councillors, and is controlled by the Conservative Party, which has 46 councillors, versus 23 Liberal Democrats and 9 Labour councillors. It is a member of the East of England Local Government Association.
Elections are held every four years, interspersed by three years of elections to the ten district councils in the county.
Conservative candidates represent most of the county's rural areas, and almost all of eastern Hertfordshire is Conservative-controlled.
