How Essex voted at the last General Election

24 Apr How Essex voted at the last General Election

By Simon Phetter

2015 was a very victorious year for the Tories here in Essex, one could say Essex was a sea of blue after a very positive general election result for the conservatives.

Giving the nation and MPs 51 days’ notice, Theresa May made the shock announcement outside Downing Street earlier this month that a snap general election would be conducted in May 2017 saying: “The country is coming together but Westminster is not.”

With this in mind we thought we would remind you how Essex voted at the last general election:

Basildon and Billericay – Conservative

Basildon South and Thurrock East – Conservative

Braintree – Conservative

Brentwood and Ongar – Conservative

Castle Point – Conservative

Clacton – Ukip

Chelmsford – Conservative

Colchester – Conservative

Harlow – Conservative

Harwich and Essex North – Conservative

Maldon – Conservative

Rayleigh and Wickford – Conservative

Rochford and Southend East – Conservative

Saffron Walden – Conservative

Thurrock – Conservative

Witham – Conservative

With 44 days to go, and so many more changes heading our way we will see how this year’s #GE2017 plays out.
