In some areas people were also voting for town and parish councillors. And in the Haworth and Steeton and Silsden areas residents voted in a referendum on now Local Plans for the neighbourhood.

Votes are usually counted the next day, but this year the District Council votes will be counted on Saturday from 10am, with results expected for different wards throughout the day.

The West Yorkshire Mayoral election count will take place on Sunday.

The Telegraph & Argus will be at the count on Saturday, and report the results as they are announced.

The results of the mayoral election will be reported later on Sunday.
