Looking at the local election results
I might do some analysis of the local election results; this would be much easier waiting for the EC to publish the results in spreadsheet form. Here are my notes on sources and methodology.
- Election 2019: How the BBC is reporting the results, from the BBC.
- Local elections: Results in maps and charts, an overview from the BBC
- Local elections 2019: full results for English councils, from the Guardian
- Electoral data files and reports, from the Electoral Commission, contains the results from last time round
- 2019 United Kingdom local elections, by wikipedia, tracks council, not ward results, probably the source of the list of authorities.
- The Democracy Club now have a local results feature.
- https://twitter.com/electionmapsuk is also cute, albeit not tabular and not indexed. I wonder if big data tools would help.
