In Almond Ward there are four new councillors – three of them have been re-elected and there is a new face at the City Chambers.

With two Liberal Democrats elected here in 2017 the party decided to flood the ward and put forward a third candidate, Lewis Younie. It was in West Edinburgh that most of the Liberal Democrat gains were made – and all of these results came early on to much whooping from the many LibDems in the EICC including the Scottish leader, Alex Cole Hamilton.

  • The electorate total 27,454
  • Votes cast 14,024
  • Turnout 51.1%
