2010 general election
The APP stood in four constituencies in the May 2010 British general election, chosen because the sitting MP was viewed by the APP as representing the interests of people or industries that use animals.
- Sarah Coats stood in Meon Valley, a new constituency where Wickham Labs is based. Coats received 255 votes (0.3%); the seat was taken by George Hollingbery for the Conservatives.
- Carrie Holliman stood in Huntingdon, where Huntingdon Life Sciences is based, against Conservative MP Jonathan Djanogly. She received 181 votes (0.3%). Djanogly held the seat.
- Jim Kapetanos stood in Vauxhall against the Labour MP Kate Hoey, chairperson of the Countryside Alliance, which promotes hunting. He received 96 votes (0.2%). Hoey held the seat.
- Keith Mann stood in Oxford West and Abingdon against the Liberal Democrat MP Evan Harris; the area has been the focus of protests against the building of Oxford University's Biomedical Sciences Building. Mann received 143 votes (0.3%); Harris lost the seat to Nicola Blackwood for the Conservative Party.
