Burnham-On-Sea election candidates and voters await results

The eleven candidates contesting the four county council seats in the Burnham-On-Sea area face a nervous wait until Friday afternoon (June 5th) to find out the results.

Polls closed at 10pm on Thursday evening after a busier-than-expected day of voting across the Burnham district.

Peter Burridge-Clayton, who is one of the candidates running for the Burnham North seat, (pictured above at The Grove polling station), told Burnham-On-Sea.com on Thursday evening: "Voting seemed to be a lot busier than many had expected."

"The good weather appeared to have brought people out to vote, rather than put them off."

And Joe Leach, pictured right, who is running for the Huntspill ward, added: "The polling stations have been busy with a steady trickle of voters all day."

The final results will be announced on Friday after the official count in Bridgwater and will be available on Burnham-On-Sea's election results page.

Both Burnham North and Huntspill have two candidates vying for the votes, while Brent has three and Highbridge four.

The candidates in the Burnham North seat are Peter Burridge-Clayton (Conservatives) and Mike Mansfield (Liberal Democrats). In Highbridge and Burnham South, the seat is being contested by Jo Burridge-Clayton (Labour), Mick Lucas (UKIP), Rosemarie Parsons (Liberal Democrats) and John Woodman (Conservatives).

In Huntspill, the contest is between Mark Healey (Conservatives) and Joe Leach (Liberal Democrats). In Brent, it's a three-way battle between Shella Rachel Forrester (Labour), Tony Gore (Liberal Democrats) and Alan Ham (Conservatives).
