Today, a bunch of elections will be taking place across the UK.

Elections are taking place for the Scottish Parliament, National Assembly of Wales, the Northern Ireland Assembly and for 124 English councils. There will also be elections for mayors in London, Bristol, Liverpool and Salford. UK parliamentary by-elections will be held in Ogmore and Sheffield Brightside, and police and crime commissioners are also being elected in England and Wales.

The polls open within the next couple of minutes and will remain open until 10pm. If you've registered, go and vote!

If you're not registered to vote, fill in this form here to make sure you're eligible to vote in the EU referendum.

Only the PCC election here, absolutely no information on any of the 4 candidates and their personal statements all read the exact same "fight crime, save money".

Not sure whether doing a spoilt vote or not voting at all will make the government realise how pointless PCCs are..

I won't be voting in our local council elections. I simply don't follow local politics enough to be familiar with the individuals involved to be able to make an informed choice. The same goes for the police commissioners.
