Our Best Euro Poll Result ever in East Lothian

May 27, 2019 10:44 AM
By Stuart Smith

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.

The Result:

Change UK 679


Conservative & Unionist 4635



Labour Party 3986



Liberal Democrats 5079



Scottish Green 3095



Scottish National 10992



Brexit 4481



UKIP 532



Gordon Edgar 99



Ken Parke 34



And the results across Scotland means we get an MEP again.
