All over Erewash residents are casting their votes today (Thursday) to decide the future make-up of Derbyshire County Council.

Here at the Advertiser, we will be providing up-to-the-second updates on the elections from the count at Long Eaton’s West Park Lesiure Centre tomorrow morning.

From 10am the votes will start to be counted, as they will at centres all over the country.

Derbyshire County Council is currently Conservative, who hold a majority of just two seats.

Could things be about to change?

Here in Erewash there are candidates from the three major parties – Conservatives, Labour and Liberal Democrats.

And there will also be candidates from the Green Party, UKIP and a Monster Raving Loony hopeful.

Our reporter Dave Wade will be tweeting live from the count on Friday via the account @DaveTiser.
