A locally conservative hybridized finite element method for Stokes equations is presented and analyzed. The hybridized approach reduces a lot of degrees of freedom, especially for pressure approximation. In our approach the pressure is determined locally up to a constant, therefore, the global stiffness system contains only the average of pressure variable on each cell as unknowns.
