The data files below provide complete election results by constituency and candidate. These results have been obtained directly from Returning Officers following the election. Please note that this data may differ from initial results available from other organisations. The data may change as it is revised and updated by local authorities during the coming weeks and months. These figures are therefore provisional. Declaration times are recorded as reported by BBC. In the detailed results by candidate file, the sitting MP column indicates if candidates were an MP at dissolution; they may not have been an MP in the same constituency.
This paper will be updated with further analysis in 2020.
