The official results from the Northcote by-election are in and congratulations to National's Dan Bidois on his clear victory where he polled well in excess of 50% of the total vote.

Congratulations too to the Labour candidate who lifted their vote to a respectable 44% although that was achieved, in part, by canabalising the vote of their two support parties.

The Greens ended up with just 2.9% of the vote while Winston First's Kym Koloni (who ran as an independent) created some sort of history by failing to win any of the 1,119 special votes and polling less than half of 1%.

Turnout in the by-election was just 44%.
