The people of Whitchurch have re-elected Eric Dunlop (Liberal Democrats) as local councillor at Basingstoke & Deane Borough Council (B&DBC).
Eric will rejoin Keith Watts (Liberal Democrats), who was re-elected in 2010, in representing the town on Borough Council matters.
|Eric Dunlop||(Liberal Democrats)||791||(52.9%)|
|Ian Richard Green||(Conservatives)||526||(35.2%)|
Turnout: 1,494 out of possible 4,117 (36%), 8 spoiled votes (0.1%)
Note: a query has been asked of B&DBC as the numbers do not tally (791+526+164+8 = 1489 instead of 1494; and the electorate appears to have dropped from 4144 in 2010 to 4117 this year, as reported by B&DBC – this page will be updated once B&DBC electoral services provide clarification
UPDATE: B&DBC have stated only that the electoral services team went home at lunch – without replying to the query – and will not be back in until Tuesday
Full election details and the official documents are on the Basingstoke and Deane website –
ELECTORAL SERVICES which should be taken as the definitive information.
The Whitchurch Town Website and its team would very much like to congratulate Eric for his success in the election.
