Here’s my coverage of all the local council by-election results in Britain, updated each week as the results come in.

See my post “The danger in celebrating parish and town council wins for your own party” for the reasons I generally avoid covering town, parish or community council by-elections.
You can also sign up to receive full by-election voting figures each week by email at www.libdemnewswire.com (pick the daily digest option).

Four council by-elections this week, and four Liberal Democrat candidates. … Read the full post »
A bumper set of eleven council by-elections or deferred contests from May this week. A little disappointing to see that it is only eight Lib Dem candidates across those eleven – but that is up four on the last time these seats were all fought. … Read the full post »
