Aberconwy: Conservative hold

Robin Millar has been elected MP for Aberconwy, meaning that the Conservative Party holds the seat with an increased majority.

The new MP beat Labour's Emily Owen by 2,034 votes. This was considerably more than Guto Bebb’s 635 vote majority in the 2017 general election.

Lisa Goodier of Plaid Cymru came third and Liberal Democrat Jason Edwards came fourth.

Voter turnout was up by 0.2 percentage points since the last general election.

Nearly 32,000 people, 71.3% of those eligible to vote, went to polling stations across the area on Thursday, in the first December general election since 1923.

All four candidates keep their deposits, after receiving more than 5% of the votes.
