Over the past three months Scottish Liberal Democrat campaigners have listened to hundreds of East Lothian voters both during the Haddington and Lammermuir By Election and then in the European Parliamentary Elections.

We achieved an excellent result in the by-election increasing our vote share compared to 2017. When the Euro Vote was counted last night we achieved our best ever result at this type of election. We came 2nd with 15.1% share of the vote, a huge increase of 9.4% compared to 2014.

We must say thank you to all 5,079 people who voted for us last Thursday.
