Elections in Great Britain are run on a constituency by constituency basis. This means verified results are not collected centrally.  

The Electoral Commission will publish verified results in the following months.

Results after 649 of 650 seats declared. The poll in the constituency of Thirsk and Malton has been postponed until 27 May due to the death of the UKIP candidate, John Boakes.
