April’s by-election summary

A dozen contests in April, a far from representative sample but they will be of interest to some.

party vote share % seats won candidates net gain
Conservative 32.7 6 12 -1
Labour 21.0 3 11 0
Liberal Democrat 16.5 2 7 +2
Independent 12.8 1 5 -1
UKIP 11.4 0 7 0
Plaid Cymru 2.8 0 1 0
Green 2.7 0 3 0

The Liberal Democrat candidate in Osbournby (North Kesteven District Council) attracted a mere nine votes – one less than the number of signatures required to stand in the first place.
