Hopes rise for traditional general election night drama
Survey finds that returning officers in more than half of the UK’s 650 constituencies will be starting their counts when polls closed – rather than waiting till the next day.
The commission has now received a total of 586 responses out of the 650 constituencies.
Of these 330 reported that they aimed to begin counting on the night of polling day, 187 had not decided yet, with 52 planning to begin the morning after.
