The Watford Observer will bring live results and reactions from the parliamentary election in the constituency.

After a long campaign, the seven candidates will find out in the early hours of tomorrow morning whether they were successful in their bid to become the city’s MPs. Counting will take place across the country after polls close tonight (July 4) at 10pm.

Reporter Fintan McGuinness will be at the Watford Leisure Centre next to the Town Hall from around 9.45pm, providing up-to-the-minute reactions, commentary and updates in a live blog.

The winner is expected to be announced around 3am, while results for South West Hertfordshire should be known at 3.45am, Hertsmere at 4am and Hemel Hempstead at 5am.
