LCC Election Results: 2013

LCC Election Results 2013We bring the first news of the LCC Election Results for Fylde.  We predicted that independents would do well; there would be gains for UKIP; losses for Conservatives, mixed results for the Lib Dems, with Greens and Labour bringing up the rear.

As a comparison we've extracted the Fylde data for the last few years and included this year's results.
Year St A Nth St A Sth Lytham Fy Sth Fy West Fy East
2013 Con Con Con   Ind Ind
2009 LibDem Con Con Con Ind Ind
2005 Con Con Con Con Con Ind
2001 Con Con Con N/a Con Con

Note:
'Fylde South' did not exist before boundary changes after the 2001 election

The overall number of elligible voters in Fylde is 2013 =  61,490  (in 2009 it was 61,144)

The overall - and much reduced - turnout in Fylde in 2013 = 30.64%    (in 2009 it was 41.03%)

We'll bring some analysis of the results when we've had chance to digest them. The shock headline news in Fylde is: the Conservative gain of 'St Annes North' from the Lib Dems, and another huge loss for Lib Dems in St Annes South; the big reductions in voter turnout, and UKIP not doing as well as we had expected in Fylde
