With the general election just weeks away, there is no doubt that Oxfordshire households will be considering their vote.

Among the party leaders hoping to be successful are the Conservative's Rishi Sunak, Labour's Sir Keir Starmer and the Liberal Democrats' Sir Ed Davey.

They’ve been travelling across the UK as part of their campaigns recently to mixed receptions. Each campaign has so far divided voters for varying reasons.

The last general election took place in 2019 and with the next one due on July 4, you might wonder how your area voted all those years ago.

We have put together a map showing how the entire UK voted, but let’s take a closer look at Oxfordshire.
