General Election Results - 28 May 1980

General elections were held in Anguilla on Wednesday, 28 May 1980. About 3,500 of Anguilla's 6,500 residents were eligible to vote.

On Polling Day, Ronald Webster, who led this island's formal break from the British associated state of St. Kitts-Nevis-Anguilla in 1976, was returned to power.  Webster's newly formed Anguilla United Movement (AUM) won six of the seven elected seats in the 12-member Anguilla Legislative Assembly in the Wednesday election and was reinstalled as the island's Chief Minister.

Emile Gumbs, who had been the appointed Chief Minister, was the only member of the Anguilla National Alliance (ANA) to win a seat in the Assembly.
