The polls are now open in the UK's largest ever set of local elections.
Up for election today are the Scottish parliament, the Welsh assembly, the new MP for Hartlepool, and a host of Mayors, Police and Crime Commissioners, and councillors.
Polls are open until 10pm
You do not need your polling card to vote, but it helps.
If you have a postal vote and have not yet returned it you can do so at a polling station until polls close at 10pm.
