General Election: Berwickshire, Roxburgh and Selkirk – early indications
The count here at Kelso is well under way.
There were 53,316 votes cast from a total electorate of 74,518, equating to a turnout of 71.5%.
That’s the exact same percentage as in 2017, when Conservative John Lamont won with an 11,060 majority.
Early indications are that it’s a much closer race this time round.
The SNP’s Calum Kerr does appear to have eaten into that majority a good deal, but the Tories are looking the happier camp.
Across the rest of Scotland, it’s a different story, with the SNP predicted to win 55 seats.
However, the exit polls suggest it will be a landslide victory for the Tories across the rest of the UK.
