In the spirit of transparency, we have started to publish a number of datasets for which we are responsible.
This page links to election results data in machine readable format. We will add further historical data as resources allow.
The data is presented as comma separated value (CSV) files which can be read by text editors and spreadsheets such as Microsoft Excel and Open Office. To save the file to your computer, use right mouse click and select "save target as" or "save link as".
Unless otherwise stated, the data is licensed under the Open Government Licence. This means that you do not need permission to use or re-use the data.
