Edward Timpson has been elected MP for Eddisbury, meaning that the Conservative Party holds the seat with an increased majority.
The new MP beat Labour's Terry Savage by 18,443 votes. This was more than Antoinette Sandbach's majority of 11,942 votes at the 2017 general election.
Ms. Sandbach held the seat for the Conservative Party from 2015. In October of this year, she was expelled from the parliamentary party after voting against the government over Brexit.
She joined the Liberal Democrats, but came in third.
The Green Party's Louise Jewkes came fourth.
Voter turnout was down by 1.2 percentage points since the last general election.
Nearly 53,000 people, 71.9% of those eligible to vote, went to polling stations across the area on Thursday, in the first December general election since 1923.
Two of the five candidates, Louise Jewkes (Green) and Andrea Allen (UKIP) lost their £500 deposits after failing to win 5% of the vote.
