Annette Brooke Retains Seat

Annette Brooke held the Mid Dorset and North Poole constituency with a much reduced margin, down to just 269 from a more comfortable 5,487 in 2005. The swing from LibDem to Conservative was 6.3% but it's impossible to tell how many were voting tactically to help the Conservatives oust Labour nationally, and how much of the drop is down to constituency boundary changes or other factors.

Turnout was 46,788 (64%).
