Council By-Election Results

Last night's council by-election results:

Bush Hill Park Ward, LB Enfield. Con hold. Con 1320 (63.4%, +23.4), Lab 413 (19.8%, +6.6), LD 129 (6.2%, -3), UKIP 123 (5.9%< +0.9), Green 97 (4.7%, -5.5). Swing of 8.4% from Lab t0 Con since 2006. The numbers look a bit odd because second place in 2006 was taken by an independent Save Chase Farm Hospital candidate.

Drypool Ward, Hull City Council. LD regain after their cllr defected to Con. LD 1306 (52.3%, -11.6), Lab 891 (35.7%, +8), NF 184 (7.4%, +7.4), Con 117 (4.7%, -3.6). Swing of 9.8% from LD to Lab since 2008.

Is there a site somewhere that lists all by-elections and their results, or do you have to dig for the information?

Thanks for the reply Luke. It's a shame there isn't a central site of some type that actually provides information on ALL elections. One other interesting site I came across was votewise. Had you heard about them previously?
