Voters across Huntingdonshire headed to the polls yesterday (Thursday) to elect members of Huntingdonshire District Council as well as town and parish councils.

It is the first time since 2004 that all of the 52 seats on the district council were up for election, a move which follows boundary changes affecting many of the wards.

Nearly 150 candidates are contesting the district seats, including several sitting councillors who had to fight new seats because of the changes.

The district’s 117 polling stations were open from 7am-10pm and the council had more than 400 members of staff on duty, including 324 polling staff and a further 100 involved in counting the votes.

Town council elections are also taking place, along with some of the district’s parishes where there are more candidates than places.
