European elections – the Southend-on-Sea result
May 25, 2014 4 Comments
I attended the European count in Southend-on-Sea tonight, and here is the result:
|An Independence From Europe||1073||2.5%|
|Christian Peoples Alliance||375||0.9%|
A good night for UKIP and a poor one for the Conservatives. Labour did pretty well, as did the Greens who relegated the Liberal Democrats to fifth spot.
A lot of spoilt papers, most of which were entirely blank. This, I believe, was because some voters only wanted to vote in the local elections yet were told they had to take a European ballot paper as well.
