Littledown: ready for the 2017 election count
Littledown: ready for the 2017 election count
Looking down from the café area of SZ1293 : Littledown: the leisure centre into the main sports hall, which is the venue for Bournemouth's election counts. It is 9:20pm so there are 40 minutes until polls close, whereupon ballot boxes will be brought here.

The room is split down the middle, as seen from here, for the two constituencies, Bournemouth East (right-hand side) and Bournemouth West.

This is a more straightforward count than the general election in 2015, which was combined with the local elections - meaning that the various counting teams had to be carefully split into individual wards. This time, the teams on each side of the room did not need such differentiation and any ballot box could be given to any team.
