Today is polling day in the elections across Wirral for who your local councillor and Police and Crime Commissioner will be. Polling stations are now open and will close at 10pm. If you have a postal vote and haven’t sent it back yet, your local polling station can accept your completed postal ballots too.

As the ballot papers for both elections will have to first be sorted out from each other at the count, this will cause a slight delay in the result being declared.

The votes in the local councillor elections will be counted and declared first, with the count of the votes in the Police and Crime Commissioner election happening (as far as I know) tomorrow morning. The result of Merseyside’s Police and Crime Commissioner ballot is expected later on Friday.

There’s no right in law for the press to be present at the count (it’s at the discretion of the Returning Officer who I haven’t asked) and I don’t plan on being there tonight.

If the local councillor results are declared at a reasonable time I will be posting them as they happen on this blog. If not, I will post the results tomorrow morning. However as Wirral Council councillors are elected by thirds, a number of council seats stay the same as there are only elections for twenty-three out of sixty-six councillors.

I will (along with Leonora) be going to my local polling station to vote in both elections.

If you click on any of the buttons below, you’ll be doing me a favour by sharing this article with other people.

    If their side voted to close Lyndale

    If their side voted to close Girtrell Court

    If their side colluded over Wirral “Funny” Bizz

    If their side is involved in Wirralgate

    Don’t vote for that party.

    Ooroo

    The party I refer to has a “Dill” in charge

  3. I went at 7.05 am and voted for non of the above.

  4. You didn’t put my comment up about vote rigging John.

    Has Surjit been waving a club over your head again?

    • I’ve only just got back and am going through the comments now. All comments (from everyone) at the moment have to be manually approved before publication (I’ll change that once this election is over).

    Congratulations to Stuart Kelly.

    He’s back.

    The only pair of cohones in the house.

    Saying that there is a suspicion of Nurse Rat having bigger ones than “The Pretend Friend”.

    Stuart Kelly the only one of 66 who questioned the conspiracy over Wirral “Funny” Bizz knocking off about £2,000,000.00 and spending about £200,000.00 defending the criminals.

    Ooroo

    James

    Time for some to stand down after Wirralgate and Wirral “Funny” Bizz.
