Top 5 Labour wards, 2001 to 2016



Following on from my previous post, here (below) is a table showing those wards that got the highest Labour vote in the local elections (2001 – 2016) in Southend-on-Sea.

Kursaal, Milton  and Victoria are ever present in the sixteen years shown here.
Victoria is either first or second in every election.
St Luke’s feature in the first eleven elections, then drop out of the top five.
Nine wards have appeared in the top five, meaning that eight have yet to make an appearance.

Achieving a first does not necessarily equate to a victory. Milton was not won in 2015, Kursaal was not won in 2008, St Luke’s was not won in 2007.

Westborough was won in 2001, yet is not in that year’s top five for Labour; and the same again in 2002.
