Voters across many parts of England are also taking part in polls for local councils and mayors as well as the general election.

There are full elections in 34 county councils across England.

Three unitary authorities - Bristol, Isle of Wight and Stockton-on-Tees - are also holding polls.

Four directly elected mayoral contests are also taking place in Doncaster, North Tyneside, Stoke-on-Trent and Hartlepool on Thursday.

I hope theres a big turnout, for some reason I have a feeling there will be!

Anybody staying up to watch it? Any preferences on which channel to watch? Im quite excited! Probably the most entertaining day in politics we will have for another 4 years


nb. I dont tend to get very excited about politics normally, just to clarify..

- I hope you are right.
I think it's a bit sad some people choose not to vote......if anyone really wants to send a message of disaproval to them all then I think the spoiled ballot paper is the way to do it.
They get counted for a start, low turnout just gets a passing remark.

Members of my own family fought and some died and others were ruined for the remainder of their life so I would have this priviledge - as recently as my great uncles and my uncle - and I'm damned if it'd throw that back in their faces.


Anybody staying up to watch it?


- I make a point of sitting up until around 3am.
By then the result (and the scale of the result) is pretty certain and the few surprises have been and gone (if you saw it, who can forget Mellor and Portillo's results in 1997?)


Any preferences on which channel to watch?


- Beeb, and when I feel like it a scan from time to time of ITV and Sky.

- True, it's the night it all happens. The public have spoken and we find out their will.

This is my 7th general election and even though I am quite certain of the result it'll be interesting to see how my guestimations to date stand against the actual reality of how the people voted.

No name calling and angry mobs...I would have voted Conservative

My MP is Michael Fabricant and he's done a good job so I'd have voted for him.

BBC: Lichfield Result



Lichfield was 36 on Labour's list of targets apparntly...
