Latest news: 2014 European Parliament election page is fully updated. I'm afraid you'll have wait for the 11 new district councils, though we do at least have maps and candidate lists: Antrim & Newtownabbey, Armagh, Banbridge & Craigavon, Belfast City, Causeway Coast & Glens, Derry & Strabane, Fermanagh & Omagh, Lisburn & Castlereagh, Mid & East Antrim, Mid-Ulster, Newry, Mourne & Down, and North Down & Ards.

The clickable map, and the links at the end of this paragraph, will take you to a full set of election results since 1996 for the 18 constituencies (ie electoral districts) used for elections to the Northern Ireland Assembly and to the House of Commons at Westminster. The current boundaries were first used for the Westminster election of 2010. The 18 constituencies are East Belfast, North Belfast, South Belfast, West Belfast, East Antrim, North Antrim, South Antrim, North Down, South Down, Fermanagh and South Tyrone, Foyle, Lagan Valley, East Londonderry, Mid Ulster, Newry and Armagh, Strangford, West Tyrone, and Upper Bann. (See the map to the right, drawn by Conal Kelly.)

Thanks to the generosity of the McDougall Trust, and the support of the Centre for Data Digitsation and Analysis at QUB, the Northern Ireland Elections site is now able to offer Excel spreadsheets covering every count of every full election in Northern Ireland since 1973.

On this site you will find information about elections in Northern Ireland since 1885, with particular information about the elections held in 2011 (Assembly), 2011 (local government), 2010 (Westminster), 2009 (European Parliament), 2007 (Assembly), 2005 (Westminster), 2005 (local government), 2004 (European Parliament), 2003 (Assembly), 2001 (Westminster), 2001 (local government), 2000 (South Antrim by-election), 1999 (European Parliament), 1998 (Assembly), 1997 (local government), 1997 (Westminster), 1996 (Forum/talks), 1995 (North Down by-election), 1994 (European Parliament), 1993 (local government), 1992 (Westminster), 1989 (European Parliament), 1989 (local government), 1987 (Westminster), 1986 (15 by-elections), 1985 (local government), 1984 (European Parliament), 1983 (Westminster), 1982 (Assembly), 1981 (local government), 1979 (European Parliament), 1979 (Westminster), 1977 (local government), 1975 (Convention), October 1974 Westminster), February 1974 (Westminster), 1973 (Assembly), 1973 (local government), and the Westminster elections of 1970, 1966, 1964, 1959, 1955, 1951, and 1950, with details also of the referendums held in 1998 and the 1970s.

On the Site Map page you will find links to more information, including descriptions of the political parties, some historical pieces, and my selection of useful books and links.
