Final Denby by-election results
Attached are the final results for the Denby by-election.
After full scrutineering, the vote count remains the same as the preliminary count.
Again, the final result remains unconfirmed until the Electoral Officer has publicly declared the result, which is expected to be on Wednesday 13 December 2017.
The turnout for the election was 32.04%.
I declare the result of the by-election held on 7 December 2017 for one member of the Denby Ward to be as follows:
Candidate: Votes Received:
