Municipal elections will be held in the Czech Republic on 5th and 6th October 2018 together with Senate elections. One third of the 81-member Senate is elected every two years, giving Senators six year terms. The seats are elected in single-member constituencies using the two-round system.  

Last time, the Czech local elections took place on 10-11 October 2014, so this year they had to be held at the beginning of the first October weekend. The elections to local authorities must be held within 30 days before the four-year term of local representatives expires. The same rules apply to the Senate elections.
