Castle Point, 2016



Thirteen wards contested in Castle Point, and one by-election. Here is the summary data for those elections.

Labour's vote share is up on 2015, and was their best performance since 2012. Of course, there is some way to go to repeat their performances of the 1990s when they ran the borough and successfully won the 1997 General Election.

The closest contest was in  Canvey Island East where the Canvey Island Independent candidate succeeded with a 30 vote majority over UKIP.
