Voting under way

Local elections and first national referendum for a generation taking place today. Results will be published on this website as they are announced.

VOTING is under way across East Devon.

Residents are going to the polls to elect parish, town and district councillors, as well as take part in the first national referendum in a generation.

The voting system for Westminster elections is in the spotlight, with the electorate being asked if they would like the country to adopt an alternative vote system.

Local election results will appear on this website as they are announced. Reporter Stefan Gordon will be at Knowle, in Sidmouth, to record the results immediately.
