Election results timetable: what time do they start and when will they be declared in my area?

Asa Bennett
The election results are expected to start being declared from 11pm tonight.

Election-watchers are in for a treat as they pore over the results that trickle in throughout the night. Charting the key seats to watch, and the big beasts who'll be having their own career making or breaking moments, here is our hour-by-hour guide on what to keep an eye on this general election.

10pm 

The exit poll, having been carried out throughout the day under the watch of polling maestro Sir John Curtice,  came out. The BBC/Sky/ITV poll suggested the Conservative would win 368 seats, 42 above the 326 needed for an absolute majority in the House of Commons.

Labour is predicted to win 191 seats, the Scottish National Party 55, Liberal Democrats 13, the Brexit Party none, Plaid Cymru three and Greens one.

This would give the Tories a majority of 86. It would represent the largest majority for a Conservative leader since Margaret Thatcher in the 1980s and the worst result for the Labour Party since 1935.

11pm

For a short period, the only elected member of Parliament will be a Labour one thanks to the safe seat of Houghton and Sunderland South keeping its record as the first constituency to declare its election results first. But the margin of victory for Labour will be noteworthy anyway about what to expect elsewhere across the country.

Sunderland was a referendum bellwether in 2016, with the 61.3 per cent Leave victory early on leading Sir John to warn early on that Remain did not have it in the bag.

  • Newcastle upon Tyne Central

12pm

Feel free to take a break for a bit as a few more Labour stalwart seats come in, like Sunderland Central. Given Nigel Farage's late-stage focus on cleaving Labour votes away, it'll be interesting to see how his Brexit Party candidates do here as an early sign on if they might get near to victory in any of their target seats.

  • Newcastle upon Tyne
  • North Sunderland Central
  • Halton

1am 

Have the Tories wooed Workington Man? The answer will be clear when of the Tories' big targets, Workington, comes in. 

They'll also be hoping to beat back Labour in Nuneaton, a seat that acquired bellwether status in 2015. If they have succeeded here, the chances of a Tory majority will rise. 

  • Basildon & Billericay
  • Broxbourne
  • Down North
  • Jarrow
  • Middlesbrough
  • Rutherglen & Hamilton West
  • South Shields
  • Wigan
  • Darlington
  • Kilmarnock & Loudoun
  • Swansea West

2am

For Labour to do well, it will need to have picked up seats like Watford, vacated by Tory Richard Harrington, and Putney, vacated by former Tory MP Justine Greening, at this point. If Labour fails to do so, and loses the nearby seat of Battersea to the Tories - having taken it off them in 2017 - a grim night will be assured. 

Will the Tories break through Labour's "Red Wall"? We will know that by now as the results come up by this point for West Bromwich East, Tom Watson's old seat, and that of hitherto safe Labour seats like Gateshead. If they take seats like Gower by this point, the Welsh Conservatives will be celebrating. 

Amid the slew of results, some of the Brexit Party's key target seats will declare, like Hartlepool, which chairman Richard Tice is contesting. They will be hoping for a close second, if not an outright win, in order to avoid a grueling night that fails to deliver any seats.

Keep an eye on Birkenhead too, where Labour veteran Frank Field - a critic of Jeremy Corbyn - will be hoping to be re-elected as an independent.

3am

This is when we should get clear signs of any Brexit backlash, as Iain Duncan Smith hopes to cling onto his seat of Chingford & Woodford Green, while Dominic Raab hopes to do the same in Esher & Walton. Dominic Grieve will be hoping to strike a blow for the Remainers by securing re-election as an independent MP for Beaconsfield.

The Liberal Democrats will know if they should be cracking open the champagne at this point to celebrate or drown their sorrows. Chuka Umunna, the star Labour defector, hopes to turn the Cities of London and Westminster yellow for them, and Sarah Wollaston - the former Conservative MP for Totnes - hopes to keep her seat as a Lib Dem. The party also hope to seriously threaten John Redwood in Wokingham.

It could all end in tears for them though, especially if Jo Swinson fails to fend off an SNP challenge to her seat of Dunbartonshire East.

The Tories will hope their efforts to woo voters in Labour heartlands continue to pay off by bringing them seats like Bishop Auckland, where Dehenna Davison has been standing, and Don Valley - the seat former Labour minister Caroline Flint is hoping to keep.

After coming second in this year's Peterborough by-election, the Brexit Party will be hoping to go further in the results. But the Tories could well snatch it off Labour instead. 

Jeremy Corbyn will no doubt have something to say about how things have been going when he returns as MP for Islington North, especially if his own majority has been dented. But Labour could have something to shout about if it takes Amber Rudd's old seat of Hastings & Rye.

Meanwhile, the DUP will be hoping to see off a pro-Remain alliance in Belfast North and Belfast South, which risks ousting its deputy leader Nigel Dodds and Emma Little-Pengelly.

4am

What Boris Johnson says after the results for his seat of Uxbridge & Ruislip South will be worth looking out for, not least as he risks losing his seat to Labour, which could leave him having to make a personal concession speech.

The Prime Minister will hope to be able to celebrate Tory gains from Labour, with results coming in for seats like Bassetlaw, vacated by John Mann, Kensington - which Tory defector Sam Gyimah is contesting - and Croydon Central - which the Tory Gavin Barwell lost in 2017.

Jacob Rees-Mogg, hidden away for most of the campaign, will breathe a sigh of relief to see his majority still intact in North East Somerset

Labour will be hoping to keep hold of seats like Plymouth Sutton & Devonport, with such a result sweetened by seeing off the veteran Tory turned Brexit Party MEP Anne Widdecombe. They will also hope to take Tory seats like Reading West, which cabinet minister Alok Sharma holds by a slim majority. The party's former MP Angela Smith, now a Lib Dem, will be hoping to do well in Altrincham and Sale West around this time but her chances are slim.

If the Tories have punched through Labour's Red Wall, this is when the real dividends will be reaped. Gloria de Piero's old seat of Ashfield will declare around this time, as well as Dennis Skinner's Bolsover

The results will also be known in Barrow & Furness, where outgoing former Labour MP John Woodcock has urged voters to back the Tories, as well as Dudley North, where the Brexit Party candidate withdrew in order to avoid splitting the Tory-inclined Leave vote.

However, the Tories risk losing seats like Chipping Barnet to Labour, which would see one of their cabinet ministers Theresa Villiers unseated in the process.

Around this time, former Tory Remainers Anna Soubry and Antoinette Sandbach will be hoping to be re-elected in their seats of Broxtowe and Eddisbury respectively. Meanwhile, Luciana Berger - the former Labour MP turned Lib Dem - will be hoping to turn ​Finchley & Golders Green yellow.

There is further independent action to be had in Hertfordshire, where David Gauke will be hoping to cling onto his Hertfordshire South West seat he had won many times over as a Tory in his new guise.

The big seat to watch at this time of the morning is the leafy Richmond Park, where Zac Goldsmith will be hoping to have fended off the Liberal Democrats - who took the seat off him in the 2016 by-election - in order to return as MP. If he loses, Mr Johnson will have lost one of his most ardent Brexiteer ministers and a vociferous ally.

Of course, if there is a hung parliament, then these MPs will be elected just in time to get stuck into the inter-party wrangling.
