By-election previews: 22nd June 2017

Welcome to the (first?) 2017 parliament. After a week off while we digested the consequences of that general election result – congratulations to any readers of Andrew’s Previews who saw the hung parliament coming – we are back on the by-election trail with five polls on 22nd June 2017. There have already been lots of knock-on effects from the 8th June election, as those of us...

By-election previews: 8th June, 2017

“All the right votes, but not necessarily in the right order” Millions of words, acres of pixels and oceans of ink have already been expended on the 2017 general election. But you’ll find very little information about the downballot races: the by-election to the Scottish Parliament and the thirty-four local by-elections that are taking place in England and Wales on 8th June....

By-election previews: 25 May 2017

So, there are just two weeks to go now before 2017’s main electoral course of the general election. There is just one local by-election remaining before then, but if you were looking for insights into the national picture you’re likely to be disappointed for this is a ward that behaves in its own way. Without further ado, we’re off to the end of the Thames Estuary… ...

By-election previews: 18 May 2017

“All the right votes, but not necessarily in the right order” New surroundings, new colours, new styles, a new host, but the same old Andrew’s Previews. After nearly a year of this column being kindly hosted by Ian Warren of Election Data, Ian has decided to move in a different direction. I’d like to place on record my thanks to Ian for allowing me to share his platform...

Remembering Lily Jayne Summers, 1993 - 2016


On 16 December, 2016, our Co-Founder, Lily Jayne Summers, sadly passed away.

Lily was integral to the development of Britain Elects, working hard on every national election night since its founding in 2013. She was a passionate person committed to the politics she believed in, and she enjoyed the part she played in BE. She was authentic, ambitious, funny, quick witted, always up for an argument, and heartwarming to those who knew her. She was a student at Swansea University, a council candidate for the Labour Party and formerly active with the Salvation Army.

She was a great colleague, but to me she was more my closest friend than anything else. Lily meant so much. I’m shocked and sorry to see her taken from this world at such a young age.

– Ben, Co-Founder
