Notes[edit]

  1. ^ A county constituency (for the purposes of election expenses and type of returning officer)
  2. ^ As with all constituencies, the constituency elects one Member of Parliament (MP) by the first past the post system of election at least every five years.
  3. ^ None of the Above Zero was a candidate at the 2010 general election.[12] Previously known as Eric Mutch, he changed his name by deed poll to stand under that name. As candidates are listed by surname first he appeared on the ballot paper as "Zero, None of the Above,"[13] in effect giving voters a none of the above — if elected he promised to resign immediately.[14] He came last with 172 votes.[15]
