Election results map: How every seat voted across the UK (2024)

Labour has won the general election after securing more than 400 seats in a landslide victory that condemned the Conservatives to their worst election result in modern history.

With three seats still to be declared as of Friday morning the Tories had fallen to 120 seats, down significantly from the 2019 election, as the Liberal Democrats – adding over 60 seats compared to 2019 to take their total to 71 – and Labour each made significant gains.

It means that after surpassing the 326 seats required to form a government, Sir Keir Starmer‘s party is set to have a significant majority when parliament returns to session.

Elsewhere, the Green Party of England and Wales celebrated an historic night that saw the party gain three seats, meaning they will have four MPs in the next parliament, while Nigel Farage was one of four Reform UK candidates to be elected, and in Scotland the SNP dropped to just nine seats.

i will be bringing you all of the results, seat-by-seat, live. This shows how many seats parties have won:

The outcome of the early seats provided some insight into the night ahead, with gains for Labour, the Lib Dems and Reform met with Tory losses.

Houghton and Sunderland South won the race to declare the first 2024 election result as Labour’s shadow Education Secretary Bridget Phillipson was re-elected at around 11pm.

Soon after, the new constituency of Blyth and Ashington was won by Labour’s Ian Lavery with 20,030 seats, compared with Reform’s 10,857 and the Conservative Party’s 6,128.

The first Tory seat of the night was won by former defence minister Mark Francois, who became the MP for Rayleigh and Wickford.

But Labour gains were soon the theme of the night following victories in the previously Tory-held constituencies of Telford, Bridgend, Swindon North and Thurrock in the early hours of the morning.

The Lib Dems gained several seats from the Conservatives, their first victory of the night coming in Harrogate and Knaresborough courtesy of a 16 per cent swing from Conservative to Lib Dem.

Sir Ed Davey – who held his own seat in Kingston and Surbiton – and co had a successful night all around that included winning the old seats of former prime ministers Theresa May (Maidenhead) and David Cameron (Witney) and also gaining a seat in Wales, where Labour added nine (taking their total to 27), Plaid Cymru increased their seats from two to four and the Conservatives lost all 12 seats the party had previously held.

Here is a map of the results declared so far:

Former justice secretary Sir Robert Buckland was the first high-profile Tory to fall overnight, losing his Swindon South seat.

That loss, to Labour, was followed by a slate of high-profile losses for the Tories including former prime minister Liz Truss, who lost her South West Norfolk seat to Labour by 630 votes after a sizeable fall from her majority of more than 26,000 at the last election.

Also on the out were Commons leader Penny Mordaunt, who lost her Portsmouth North seat to Labour with a swing of 18 per cent, and Jacob Rees-Mogg, who lost his North East Somerset seat to Labour in his own “Portillo moment”, as well as Defence Secretary Grant Shapps, veterans minister Johnny Mercer, Education Secretary Gillian Keegan, Culture Secretary Lucy Frazer and Justice Secretary Alex Chalk.

Rishi Sunak, who said this morning that he “takes responsibility for the loss” and had called the Labour leader to congratulate him, held onto his safe seat in Richmond, North Yorkshire, while Chancellor Jeremy Hunt defeated the Liberal Democrats to hold on to his tightly fought seat in Surrey.

Conservative Party chairman Richard Holden also held his seat, by just 20 votes.

Kemi Badenoch, Suella Braverman and Robert Jenrick all kept their seats and could emerge as front-runners for Tory leadership, with Priti Patel, Home Secretary James Cleverley, Health Secretary Victoria Atkins and security minister Tom Tugendhat also in the mix after fending off their respective would-be parliamentary challengers.

One of the surprises of the night was veteran Tory MP and former party leader Iain Duncan Smith holding onto his seat in Chingford and Woodford Green despite being given less than a 1 per cent chance of doing so by the exit poll last night.

In the end, his challengers – Labour’s Shama Tatler and independent candidate Faiza Shaheen, who was deselected by Labour after the election was called – split the opposition vote with just 79 votes separating the pair.

This graphic shows how seats have changed since 2019:

Mr Farage, the Reform leader, became an MP on his eighth attempt by winning the highly anticipated Clacton seat with 21,225 votes. He will be joined in the next parliament by three others Reform MPs including the party’s chairman, Richard Tice (Boston and Skegness), and former Tory deputy chair Lee Anderson (Ashfield).

George Galloway from the Workers Party of Britain lost his Rochdale seat, which was taken from Labour at a by-election earlier this year, to Labour’s Paul Waugh.

Sir Keir won his safe seat, Holborn and St Pancras, but with a lower majority, losing votes to a pro-Gaza independent candidate.

Meanwhile, Rachel Reeves – who will likely become the first female chancellor of the Exchequer – won Leeds West and Pudsey with a majority of more than 12,000, and Labour deputy leader Angela Rayner was re-elected to her Ashton-under-Lyne seat.

But election night wasn’t without disappointments for Labour, who lost shadow paymaster general and key campaign player Jonathan Ashworth following his defeat in Leicester South by independent candidate Shockat Adam.

Green Party co-leader Carla Denyer also won the Bristol Central seat that previously belonged to Labour’s shadow Culture Secretary, Thangam Debbonaire.

And in another possible headache for Sir Keir, ex-Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn – running as an independent candidate after his former party blocked him from standing – kept his long-held seat in Islington North.

Meanwhile, Labour’s share of the vote from 2019 has fallen, while Reform UK – which did not exist in 2019 – have gained 14 per cent of the vote share and came second to Labour in many seats with a large percentage of the vote.

The following bar charts show how the share of the popular vote won by each party, and how each party’s vote share has changed, respectively:
