General Election

A HUGE thankyou to everyone who voted Green in the General Election. 

North Lancashire Green Party covers 2 General Election Constituencies. 

In Lancaster & Wyre, our candidate Jack Lenox received 5236 votes, a 12.2% vote share.
In Morecambe & Lunesdale, our candidate Gina Dowding received 2089 votes, a 4.3% vote share. 
We put on a strong campaign focusing on Lancaster and Wyre. The end result was less than we hoped - but still higher than 2015, our previous best, and triple our vote share in the last General Election in 2019. 
Nationally, the Green Party gained all target seats, winning 4 new MPs:
  • Sian Berry in Brighton & Hove
  • Ellie Chowns in North Herefordshire
  • Adrian Ramsay in Waveney Valley
  • Carla Denyer in Bristol Central. 
We can be proud to have been part of the highest national Green vote ever, with over 1.8 million votes. This was 7.2% of the votes overall - a record high! This helps strengthen the case for the media and for parliament to listen to our 4 Green MPs - as they push the incoming Labour government to be bolder and better, on environmental matters and on making this county a fairer place.

Both of our constituencies were new - or had new boundaries - since changes as suggested by the Boundary Commission in 2023. The former Lancaster and Fleetwood changed the most, becoming Lancaster and Wyre, gaining Skerton and Garstang, and losing Fleetwood. Whereas the Morecambe & Lunesdale Constituency changed by losing Skerton, and gaining Arnside and Sedbergh. 

Lancaster and Wyre: Jack Lenox


Our candidate was Jack Lenox, a Lancaster City Councillor for Bulk ward, and the Green Party's national spokesperson for culture, sport and digital inclusion.

Jack is an award-winning practitioner of sustainable software, and set up the Lancaster Cargo Company, the city’s first electric cargo bicycle delivery service during the pandemic lockdowns.

Inspired by this and enquiries he got about where to buy their own e-bike, in 2023 Jack set up E-radicals - a shop in Lancaster city centre selling, and repairing, electric bikes and cargo bikes - which he hopes will help tackle the district’s air pollution and traffic issues, as well as contributing towards tackling the climate emergency.

Jack is a former board member of the Gregson Community Association, and is on the Preston and Western Lancashire Racial Equality and Diversity Council. He is currently the Vice-Chair of Lancaster City Council's Overview and Scrutiny Committee.

"After years of corruption, chaos, and austerity, we need real change. Morecambe needs investment, and development of skilled jobs including in renewable energy. The Eden Project must help local people and have well-planned, sustainable transport and parking. For climate and nature, reducing inequalities and empowering communities: vote Green on 4th July. ”
