Lancaster polling day report
The polls close in less than an hour and the word from Labour activists is that the solid Labour wards did not turn out in any numbers. The people that saw voting represented a false dawn that quickly ended. Over at the University of Lancaster campus the turnout seems to have been very high indeed with people having to wait up to an hour to vote. Most of those votes can be expected to go to the Liberal-Democrats and the Greens, so that will not effect the outcome of the vote in any way.
On the basis of gossip from activists it looks as if this constituency may have gone Conservative due to a massive abstention on the working class estates.
