General Election Results

05 July 2024

A HUGE thankyou to everyone who voted Green. Results were: Lancaster & Wyre: 5236 votes - 12.2%. Morecambe & Lunesdale: 2089 votes - 4.3%. As always our vote was squeezed by tactical voting under the unfair first-past-the-post voting system. Even so, we tripled our vote share in Lancaster & Wyre (compared to 2019), and laid a good foundation to build on next time, and in both Constituencies the vote share was higher than 2015, our previous best.
