The General Elections 2024 have turned out to be one of the most exciting in years, with the conservatives looking to take a fall from glory throughout the UK – including in the Windsor and Maidenhead constituencies.

With the exit poll showing that Labour is on course for a shocking 410 seats, to the Conservatives 131 seats, the two constituencies may be in for a shock.

Despite this however, polls I’ve seen in both areas Conservatives could hold it – but it could be close. Labour and Lib Dems both seem to think they’re in with a chance.

According to activists at the Windsor and Maidenhead count, the votes are looking like they might swing towards the Lib Dems, particularly in the Maidenhead constituency.

17-year-old Aela Martin said: “Although Labour are doing well elsewhere, they don’t seem to be getting many in Maidenhead.”

“Fingers crossed but it’s looking like it will be a close vote.”

Maidenhead constituency was previously dominated by Theresa May in her Conservative seat. However, as Mrs May stands down, the new Conservative Tania Mathias may be in with a chance.

She has been an MP before, for Twickenham in west London between 2015 and 2017. Polls also suggest Conservatives could just hang on but it could be really close between them and the Lib Dems.

The Lib Dem candidate this year for Windsor is Josh Reynold’s who says that it has been an “exciting election”.

The Windsor's MP - Conservative Adam Afriyie, has stepped down this year, with the new Tory candidate – Jack Rankin – in the running.

Labour’s Windsor councilor - Pavitar Kaur Mann – is thought to have a “good chance” of winning according to a local activist.

Mann is also the leader of the Labour opposition group on Slough Borough Council.
