People in Buckingham were unable to vote for Labour, Lib Dem or Conservative candidates because the sitting MP, John Bercow, is the Speaker in the House of Commons and therefore politically neutral.
The other main parties normally do not field candidates against the Speaker.
The election in Buckingham went ahead despite UKIP candidate Nigel Farage being involved in a plane crash near Brackley on Polling Day.
