Mark Reckless, the candidate for UKIP, the UK Independence Party, was a Conservative lawmaker until he defected in September. He won 16,867 votes or just over 42 percent of the vote in the south-eastern English constituency of Rochester and Strood. The Conservative candidate came second with 13,947 votes. Labour came third with 6,713 votes. The overall turnout was 50.67 percent.
