How did the incumbents do? An 86.5% re-election rate

We had 52 incumbent councilors run in 2014, 45 of them were re-elected.  That is 86.5% re-election rate which is actually worse than has been the case in this region.

In 10 of the 13 municipalities all the incumbent councilors running were re-elected.

  • Three of four incumbents were defeated in North Saanich - in the previous 6 elections only four were defeated
  • Two of eight incumbents were defeated in Saanich this time, the first ones defeated since 2002 In the last seven elections only six have been defeated
  • Two of six incumbents were  defeated in Esquimalt, the first since 2005.   A total of six have been defeated in the last seven elections
