Polling stations across Stevenage and North Herts opened at 7am this morning and won’t close until 10pm tonight for this year’s local elections.

Voters will go to the polls to decide 13 Stevenage Borough Council seats, while 16 are up for grabs on North Herts District Council.

The authority is also overseeing an uncontested election for two seats on St Ippolyts Parish Council.

Although there are no elections for Herts County Council or Central Bedfordshire Council this year, the electorate in Herts and Beds will be able to cast their vote to decide the next police and crime commissioner for the respective counties.

The Comet team will be covering the Stevenage and North Herts results, with the former online tomorrow morning and the latter following in the afternoon.
