Winner Geoffrey Cox, Conservative, 33,612
Vince Barry, Labour, 12,926,
David Chalmers, Liberal Democrat, 10,526,
Chris Jordan, Green, 1,622,
Robin Julian, Independent, 794
This was a brave try from Chris, who did far better than our North Devon brothers but this was a tough election to contest, with much tactical voting.
Unfortunately John Sanders - Green did not win the district seat. The Liberal Democrat Jean Leaper won with 973 John had 720. It was well leafletted and canvassed but without success. The turnout was 69.6% due to being run at the same time as the General Election.
