Venstre’s Morten Løkkegaard Wins Most Personal Votes in West Jutland

Venstre’s Morten Løkkegaard gathers the most personal votes in West Jutland. Venstre’s lead candidate, Morten Løkkegaard, has demonstrated his popularity in West Jutland by securing the most personal votes in most electoral districts. Venstre has made a mark in the area by obtaining the most votes in nine out of the 11 electoral districts in Sunday’s European Parliament election.

Data from the IT company KMD shows that Venstre has been particularly successful in the Ringkøbing district with 26.6% of the votes, even though the party received 14.7% nationwide, thus securing two seats. However, compared to the EU election in 2019, Venstre has declined in the Ringkøbing district, where they received 43.8% of the votes at that time. Nationally, the party received 23.5% in the last election, making them the largest.

In this year’s election, however, Venstre has been overtaken in the Silkeborg South district and the Skive district. In Silkeborg South, the Social Democrats (SF) won with 17.2% of the votes, while Venstre received 16%. In the Skive district, the Danish Democrats were the largest with 20.4%. Løkkegaard has positioned himself as the most popular Venstre candidate with the most personal votes in eight out of the 11 electoral districts. He received the most votes in the Silkeborg South district with 2027 personal votes. However, he was beaten in Ikast, Skive, and Ringkøbing. In Ikast, Carsten Kissmeyer from Venstre received the most personal votes, while Asger Christensen did the same in Ringkøbing. In the Skive district, it was Kristoffer Storm from the Danish Democrats who received the most personal votes, namely 1898, while Løkkegaard received 1496.

Morten Løkkegaard, who has been a Member of the European Parliament since 2009, was the first candidate to surpass 100,000 personal votes nationwide in this year’s election. So far, he has secured 147,098 votes, placing him in a provisional first place. In the 2019 election, he received 207,558 personal votes, but the voter turnout was also higher among the Danes.
