The Basingstoke by-election of 1917 was held on 25 October 1917. The by-election was held due to the incumbent Conservative MP, Arthur Salter, becoming a Judge on the High Court of Justice. It was won by the Conservative candidate Sir Auckland Geddes,[1] who was unopposed due to a War-time electoral pact.[citation needed]
