Ipswich/Suffolk: Polls are open for European elections

07:00 22 May 2014

Polling stations will be open until 10pm tonight.

Polling stations will be open until 10pm tonight.

Voters are going to the polls today in elections for the European parliament – and for local council elections in Ipswich and Colchester.

Polling stations will be open until 10pm tonight – but the European election votes will not be counted until Sunday evening after the rest of Europe has been to the polls.

The votes for council candidates in Ipswich and Colchester will be counted overnight, but they will take longer than normal because they will have to be separated from European votes first.

The results from the councils are not expected to be announced until the early hours of tomorrow morning.

We shall be covering the count online at www.eadt.co.uk with instant analysis and the full results will be printed in the EADT on Saturday.

Sunday’s results are expected to come through late in the evening – although it could be later if there is a higher than expected turnout.

Votes from across the East of England will be counted at Chelmsford. We shall be covering those results online, and they will be printed as soon as possible.

  • Vote UKIP !, us British people paying the EU £50 million every day to belong to a 'Restrictive Club' makes no sense at all !!, especially when all our services are being cut back because we cannot afford them !, and apparently there is no money for investment in our Road or Railway Infrastructure, both which urgently need maintenance and improvement !. Not to mention OUR NHS ?
