UK May 2016 election results schedule

Find out when all the results are expected to be announced in the UK local elections, including Mayor of London results and English Councils


Voting day has come and gone, so you might have been surprised this morning not to wake up to a full set of election results.


But because this isn’t a general election, we won’t know the full results until Sunday.

The BBC will have Election coverage throughout the day on the BBC News Channel, and coverage on BBC2 from 12-1pm and 2pm-6pm.

So when should we expect results?

Mayor of London election

The results of the first preference votes are expected around 6pm, although the final result won’t come in until later in the evening. However, you can follow the ‘live count’ throughout the day on the London Elects website.

English Council elections

Results will be declared throughout Friday, although at least five councils are not expected until Saturday. Bristol Council’s results, the final English council to declare, is expected Sunday (Bristol’s mayor will be announced later afternoon Saturday).


Police and Crime Commissioner elections

Results from England are expected from 6pm Friday, with Welsh Police and Crime Commissioner results announced Sunday afternoon.
