European elections: How you voted in Uttlesford


By Paul Winspear


The Conservatives, who topped the poll in Uttlesford in the 2014 European Parliament elections with 36.1% of the vote, finished fourth this time with 10.6%.

They were beaten by the newly-formed Brexit Party, the Liberal Democrats and the Green Party as the district's electorate reflected the national trend of deserting the established political parties in favour of those with clearer stances on UK membership of the European Union.

Labour were beaten into sixth in Uttlesford with a paltry 3.3% of the vote by the pro-Remain Change UK.

Uttlesford was one of 45 local authority area counts in the East of England, which has elected three Brexit Party, two Lib Dem, one Green and one Conservative MEPs to the European Parliament.

Nigel Farage's Brexit Party was top in the district with a 37.8% share of the vote, mirroring the level that it had in the region as a whole, which is made up of Hertfordshire, Essex, Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Suffolk and Norfolk.

The Liberal Democrats had 28.5% in Uttlesford compared with 22.6% in the East of England. The Green Party, Conservatives and Change UK fared marginally better in the district than they did in the region.

By the same measure, Labour and UKIP did even worse. UKIP's share of the vote in Uttlesford plummeted from 32.2% – almost a third – in 2014 to just 2.2% while Labour's fell from 9.7% to 3.3%.
