Britain Elects – The 2024 local election results

2,700 seats up for grabs in urban and rural England. See the results mapped as they come in.

By Ben Walker

The results of the 2024 UK local elections will be the last major electoral test for the main parties before the general election. Labour needs to demonstrate sustained gains in the marginals that matter if their sizeable poll lead is to be believed.

This is your page for local council election results as they come in. The ward-by-ward results map will tell you what’s happening in every individual council seat and as the results pour in, this page will be updated in-line with what’s out. Keep the page refreshed to keep an eye on what’s happening where.

The detail

The map above visualises ward-by-ward election results in an easily accessible form as they come in. Here you can see how support has shifted for each party since these seats were last contested – mostly, though not exclusively – in 2021. The tooltip shows the vote share of the parties that stood, the change against the last election, and the historic winners. And for the nerds at the back, the vote share in multi-member wards employs the top vote method, which means that the highest-performing candidate from each party counts as that party’s “true” vote. As an example: if, in a three member ward, Labour’s candidates were to win 400, 420, and 410 votes, then the 420 vote figure would count as Labour’s “true” vote. An average would be too arbitrary, and adding them up to get a mega-figure would be redundant, for in multi-member wards, voters can (and do) cast multiple-votes.

Collating the results will take time, but a spreadsheet of them will be made available upon completion.
