After a flying start to 2017 things have slowed down recently. Once again it there was just the 1 principle council by-election, and sadly yet again there was no Liberal Democrat on the ballot paper.
In Kilmarnock East & Hurlford (East Ayshire) the SNP were defending their seat, which they did increasing their vote share over Labour as Labour lost out to both the SNP and Conservatives. There was also a Libertarian candidate, not to be confused with the Liberal Democrats.
Kilmarnock East & Hurlford (East Ayshire) result:
SNP: 48.7% (+2.1)
LAB: 29.4% (-16.6)
CON: 20.1% (+12.7)
LBT: 1.8% (+1.8)
