Welcome to the Press Association Elections website

A by-election is taking place on Thursday December 8 at Sleaford & North Hykeham, prompted by the resignation of Conservative MP Stephen Phillips over “irreconcilable policy differences” with the Government.

Information on Press Association nominations and results coverage for the two polls can be found in advisories in the By-elections section.

Information about the Press Association's coverage of nominations and results in the elections set for May 4 is contained in advisories for customers on this website.

See Message specifications for information on PA's elections messages in XML format for digital products as well as a guide to those in plain text (TTY) and data format on the wire.
