Electoral record[edit]

Ingram has fought the Carrick, Cumnock and Doon Valley constituency in all four Scottish Parliament elections. He lost out in the first three elections to Labour's Cathy Jamieson but was elected as a list MSP for the South of Scotland region each time in 1999, 2003 and 2007. He eventually defeated his Labour rival, Richard Leonard, in May 2011.
