Candidates from all political parties are making a final push today, the eve of the Scottish Parliament Election 2016.

The UK Parliamentary General Election results for Edinburgh’s five constituencies were announced early this morning at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre.

Polls are open from 7am til 10pm throughout the day on what is likely to be the most important vote that Scots make in their lifetimes.

The local election results for the City of Edinburgh Council have now been declared.
