‘Just vote’ is the message to the public from a man with a busy night ahead as the general and local elections are decided.
Polling stations open in a few minutes’ time – at 7am – and will remain so until 10pm tonight as voters will help determine who will hold the power at national and local levels of democracy.
And the returning officer which will oversee a count in North Herts is urging those who are registered to vote to make use of their democratic right.
North Herts District Council’s chief executive David Scholes was keen to stress the need for people to exercise their right to vote while reminding voters that seats on the district council, as well as in the House of Commons, are at stake.
He said: “We hope that there will be a good turnout at the polls today and that if you have requested a postal vote that these have been returned in good time.

“It is important to have your say and vote in both local and national elections.”
The Crow will have reporters at the heart of the action, posting results online as they are confirmed in the early hours of tomorrow morning.
