On Thursday, May 6, millions of people cast ballots in elections around England, Scotland, and Wales.
Votes were cast for council members, mayors, police commissioners, Scottish and Welsh parliamentarians, as well as one Westminster MP.
How are the Results of the Voting Announced?
Ballot boxes were transported from all polling places to local or regional counting centres after the polls closed at 22:00 BST, where staff members opened them and began counting votes.
Media personnel and a select group of delegates from each party are permitted access to the centres to monitor the counts.
The returning officer, who is in charge of tallying the votes in a particular area, such as an English council or a Scottish constituency, then takes the stage to declare the results.
Will this Year’s Counting be Slower?
Yes, in part because of the impact that Covid’s safety measures will have.
Less employees will be present at each of the counts to accommodate social distance, which will probably cause things to move more slowly.
Measures and timelines will differ across the nation because returning officers are in charge of the procedure in their respective centres.
However, because there are so many elections happening in various places, the counts will also take longer.
Elections have been held a number of times since they were moved from 2022.
For the West of England Mayor, Bristol Mayor, Avon and Somerset Police and Crime Commissioner, and the entire Bristol Council, for instance, Bristol personnel will be counting ballots.
