The General Election is fast approaching and 80 candidates across Surrey’s 13 constituencies are after your vote. Every one of Surrey’s 11 MPs before the election was elected as a Conservative but if polls are to be believed the county could be a lot more competitive this time

Due to boundary changes, 13 constituencies now contain parts of Surrey. 11 of these are fully in Surrey while the seats of Farnham and Bordon and Windsor also contain part of the county.

Long-standing Surrey MPs including Surrey Heath’s Michael Gove, Esher and Walton’s Dominic Raab and Epsom and Ewell’s Chris Grayling are all not standing for reelection meaning whatever happens the county will be sending a lot of new faces to Westminster.

Election polls and projections, including those from YouGov, Election Calculus and Election Maps all suggest that seats could change hands in Surrey this time around with even Chancellor Jeremy Hunt’s new Godalming and Ash seat thought to be under threat.

In Surrey, both the Liberal Democrats and even Labour will be hoping to take seats from the Conservatives while both the Green Party and Reform UK will be hopeful of securing significant vote shares.

Nationally Keir Starmer’s Labour will be hoping to form the national Government while Prime Minister Rishi Sunak’s Conservatives will be hoping to limit losses as much as possible.

SurreyLive will be reporting live throughout the night and the day after polling day, bringing you the results as we get them from our reporters at counts. For more news about the general election in Surrey, visit our page here.

Farnham and Bordon

Farnham and Bordon is a new constituency made up of part of the old South West Surrey area and parts of neighbouring Hampshire. South West Surrey is the seat of the Chancellor Jeremy Hunt, but he is standing in the new Godalming and Ash seat.

This could be one of the closest seats in Surrey with Election Calculus and Election Maps projecting the Lib Dems are on track to win while YouGov forecasts a very narrow Conservative win.

  • Don Jerrard, Hampshire Independents

  • Alex Just, Lab

  • Claire Matthes, Green

  • Greg Stafford, Con

  • Khalil Yousuf, Lib Dem

  • Paul Follows, Lib Dem

  • Jeremy Hunt, Con

Guildford

Guildford is the seat of Conservative MP Angela Richardson who won with a narrow majority of 3,337 votes in the 2019 election.

  • John Morris, Peace

  • Sam Peters, Green

  • Angela Richardson, Con

Runnymede and Weybridge

Conservative MP Ben Spencer currently holds the seat and won with a majority of just over 18,000 votes in 2019.

Currently, YouGov and Election Maps forecast very narrow Conservative wins, while Election Calculus forecasts an equally narrow win for the Lib Dems.
