Solihull voters will head to the polls on Thursday to choose who their next representative in parliament will be. Voting will take place at polling stations across the borough from 7am on Thursday, (July 4).

After boundary changes Solihull voters will be choosing their MPs for three constituencies - Solihull West and Shirley; Meriden and Solihull East and Birmingham Hodge Hill and Solihull North. Counting for the Solihull West and Shirley and Meriden and Solihull East constituencies will take place at North Solihull Sports Centre in Chelmsley Wood after polls close at 10pm.

No results are expected before midnight, the declaration time expected to be around 2.30am and 3am. But factors such as a poor or huge turnout or the need for recounts could have an impact on when results are finally declared.

Meanwhile the result of the Birmingham Hodge Hill and Solihull North seat is part of the Birmingham results count taking place at the International Convention Centre (ICC) in Centenary Square. Birmingham City Council has said counting there will get underway at around 11pm.

A first result there could come at around 1am but past election counts have seen bleary-eyed candidates having to wait until 6am. Voters are reminded that for the first time for a general election they will need to produce photo ID at their polling stations when they turn up to vote.
