Polling is in progress today across the country. In Wycombe, we have elections for Bucks County Council and a by-election for Disraeli ward of Wycombe District Council.
The BFP reports that our Town Crier has made a final appeal for people to vote. So far, turnout appears to be consistent with precedent for local elections: rather low.
My wife and I voted this morning in West Wycombe. I understand people were turning out at a rate of about 10 per hour. Given that the Bucks County Council budget is about £326.8 million, I hope turnout improves throughout the day.
Results will be availabe here tomorrow. I’ll be writing more in the context of the results.
