  1. How to follow the 2012 local council and mayoral elections

    Election day live with Paul Owen and Andrew Sparrow:

    As well as the battle for London mayor and elections to the London assembly, which acts as a check on the mayor, there are also elections to 130 councils in England (of a total of 353), all 32 councils in Scotland, and 21 of 22 Welsh councils (elections to Anglesey Council postponed to next May).

    Meanwhile two other cities are voting for an elected mayor: Salford and Liverpool.

    And 11 cities will hold referendums to decide whether they should have an elected mayor: Birmingham, Bradford, Bristol, Coventry, Leeds, Manchester, Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, Nottingham, Sheffield and Wakefield.
