Assembly Election 2011 - Number of votes

The chart from LucidTalk shows the number of votes polled by each part in the 2011 Assembly Election. The election resulted in the DUP and Sinn Fein maintaining their leading ground positions with some minor gains, while the SDLP and UUP continued to lose ground. The Alliance Party gained over 14,000 votes in this election granting them a further two Assembly seats and an extra seat in the Executive. This was the first Assembly election for the TUV who got their leader Jim Allister elected in North Antrim
