Voters across Lancashire have headed to polling booths today for the first large set of elections since December 2019.

There are more elections than usual following the postponement of the May 2020 elections due to the coronavirus pandemic.

In Lancashire, there are 10 elections across the county including at Lancashire County Council, Preston City Council, Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council, and Lancashire's new Police and Crime Commissioner.

And although voting ends at 10pm tonight (May 6), the final results for every election are not expected until Monday next week (May 10).

Results will filter through from Friday afternoon and across the weekend.

A majority of the local councils - 74 across England - are understood to be counting during the day on the Friday, with most results expected in the afternoon and evening.

Estimated declaration times have always come with a warning they could be taken only as a rough guide and were subject to change in the light of new information.

However, in the case of the May 2021 elections, they have been especially difficult to produce because of the circumstances of the pandemic.

Some authorities are unsure how long it will take to count votes while keeping to social distancing requirements.
