Seems I was wrong about electronic voting speeding the count. The ballots papers had all been counted for Central ward half-an-hour ago. It’s the electronic votes that are delaying the result. The online vote checking service (by which I should be able to check receipt of my vote) isn’t working either: ‘The receipt cannot be generated yet as not enough data is available.’ The wonders of modern technology…. If it’s not announced soon I’m likely to fall asleep before the declaration.
