VOTING is under way in the 11 superwards that make up Scottish Borders Council, writes Bob Burgess.
Polling stations close at 10pm but this year the traditional overnight count has been shelved.
Instead counting starts at 9am tomorrow in a council-owned former factory at Tweedbank near Galashiels.
And you can follow the results throughout the day by logging onto our website – www.thesouthernreporter.co.uk and also on Twitter. And of course there will detailed coverage and news of who will govern the new council in Thursday’s Southern.
There are 72 candidates chasing the 34 places on the council. A total of 346 staff are involved in the election.
The first result will be from Tweeddale West around 10.30am and the last from Hawick and Hermitage in mid afternoon.
