North Somerset Election Results

A significant number of people came out and voted Green in Thursday's general election. In the North Somerset constituency, David Derbyshire took 6.5% of the votes, which is over half what the Liberal Democrats attained and just under half of what UKIP attained. Richard Lawson in Weston-super-Mare polled 4.9%.

Our seven candidates in the council elections fared better than expected for the most part too. Only one - Tom LeimdorfeDavid Derbyshire - Thank you speechr - had previously stood and his coming top of the poll in Congresbury and Puxton was no surprise. While Jason Green (WsM Uphill) and Peter Waldschmidt (WsM Hillside) both finished last, Stuart McQuillan (Long Ashton & Wraxall) and Cathy Parmenter (Banwell and Winscombe) both came fourth out of six and eight candidates respectively, while Massimo Morelli (Yatton) came fifth out of eight and Bill Carruthers (Blagdon and Churchill) did really well to relegate Labour to third place.

Perhaps most remarkable achievement is that in North Somerset the Green vote was almost 3% higher than the national proportion of Green votes which stood at 3.8%.

The candidates and agents would like to offer their warmest thanks to all those who helped the campaign along, leafletting, running stalls and other events, displaying posters and stake boards, not to mention voting Green!
