The Wokingham Paper

VOTE 2017 – Wokingham Borough results


There are four seats that cover Wokingham borough – Wokingham, Bracknell, Reading East and Maidenhead.

Three of the four MPs were returned in the 2017 June General Election, but one, Rob Wilson, was ousted by Matt Rodda.

This means that we now have three Conservative MPs – Theresa May, John Redwood and Dr Phillip Lee – and one Labour MP.

Here are the votes from the four constituencies.
