Tories hold majority in Hertsmere elections

 Published on: 21st May 2019   |   By: News Desk   |   Category: Uncategorized

The Conservatives retained their majority in Hertsmere where Liberal Democrats gained seats in Bushey, and across the country for the first time in over a decade. 

Labour also gained five seats but was not enough to damage the reputation the Conservative Party has in the borough. 

Andrew Melville, Jerry Evans, and Paul Richard were elected to serve Bushey North ward, one of the first gains the Lib Dem party has seen in local elections in 12 years.

They displaced all three Tory councillors Jane West, Kashif Merchant, and Laurence Davis.

Of the 32.8 per cent of voters that went to the polls, over 6,000 votes were spoilt, a fifth of which were in Bushey wards. 

Many of which were called ‘rejected in part’ where a voter had not selected the appropriate number of candidates in their ward. The number under ‘being unmarked or wholly void for certainty’ is where any that have had anything obscene or unclear written or drawn on it. 

Bushey St James ward recorded the highest out of the four local wards with 268. There was 379 in total.
