Election count begins

By Cornish Times in Politics

The results of yesterday’s Cornwall Council elections will be known later today.

Staff are due to begin counting the ballots cast yesterday from 10am.

Votes for the South East Cornwall Parliamentary constituency area will be counted at the Royal Cornwall Showground in Wadebridge, one of two counting centres set up by Cornwall Council.

There will be around 400 count assistants verifying and counting votes at the two centres. 

Once the count has been completed and all the declarations have been made for the Cornwall Council election, staff will begin counting the votes for the town and parish council elections. Then votes for the Neighbourhood Plan referendums, including on the Rama Peninsula, will be counted and the results declared.

The results of both the Cornwall Council and the town and parish council elections will be published on the council’s website cornwall.gov.uk as they are declared at the count centres.
