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

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 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.ipswichstar.co.uk with instant analysis and the full results will be printed in the Star on Monday.

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.

  • Please give ukip a chance, can they do any worse. Let's give them their chance, it's the fair thing to do. If it goes awry, they will be ousted.

  • Can Labour please stop harassing people to vote for them? Canvassing through door-to-door and cold calling is not acceptable. Seems various people have received multiple phone calls earlier in the week and a visit this morning to remind them to vote labour... not exactly in the spirit of an election!
