AFTER a day of visiting the Polling Stations yesterday, the voting is over and the people of Tamworth have had their say. Now it’s time for the results!

Scroll down the page to see all the results for the Tamworth Borough Council Election and the Tamworth Parliamentary Election.  If you are on a mobile, you may wish to look in landscape mode.

This year, as well as the election for a new MP, ten out of a total of thirty ‘seats’ were up for the taking on the Borough Council, one in each of the ten council ‘wards’. Each ward area has three Councillors, voted in by you, the electorate.

The political party with the majority number of ‘seats’ on the council then form the ‘controlling group’ with the rest then forming the ‘opposition’. If no party (or independent) have a majority number of ‘seats’ then they can join together to form a controlling group or ‘coalition’.

Tamworth Borough Council is currently made up of 16 Conservative councillors, 12 Labour, one UKIP and one independent following the 2014 elections, this means that the Conservative form the controlling group.

As for the election of the new MP, this was simpler, the person with the most votes became our MP – in the case of Tamworth, this is Christopher Pincher of the Conservative Party.

We would also like to congratulate Nicola Holmes of the Green Party who is new to the world of politics and has still manager to turn out 1110 voters.
