Voters have just under 12 hours to cast their votes with the local elections taking place.

Around a third of the seats are up for election in Watford, Three Rivers District, and St Albans, with a full election taking place in Hertsmere.

Polling stations have been open since 7am and people have until 10pm to vote.

If you have registered to vote, all you need to do is visit your designated polling station and fill out the ballot papers.

In Watford, make sure you take a form of ID with you otherwise you will not be allowed to vote. The borough is taking part in a Voter ID trial.

Hertsmere Borough Council is reminding anyone who is voting at Cowley Hill primary school in Borehamwood that the entrance will be via Caishowe Road and not Winstre Road.

Borough council elections are taking place alongside town and parish council elections.

We are expecting borough results from Hertsmere overnight but the town and parish count won’t start until 11am tomorrow.

St Albans District Council expect to announce results at 2am.

The counts in Watford and Three Rivers will not begin until tomorrow.

The count will begin in Three Rivers at 9am with results expected in the afternoon, and the count will begin in Watford at around 11.45am.

Make sure to visit our website as we will be providing live updates as the results come in.
