Will anyone else be stopping up to watch the local election counts tonight ? I've just had a couple of hours in bed as I expect to stay up till around 3a.m.
Did anybody have a vote this time ?, we didn't in our area.

    I haven’t seen anyone to ask today but oddly I received no voting card or anything so I haven’t voted today. I would have too. 

    I wont stay up to find out the results, I’m hoping it will be a nice surprise in the morning for me but not for Boris if you get my drift. 🙂

    Not every area had a vote today @leeCal, I'm expecting labour to take 800 council seats off the Tories, send a message to Downing St.

    2024 Election won
