Polls have opened in the City of York Council elections.
Polling stations are open between 7am and 10pm on Thursday (1 May).
The elections are held on a four year cycle and the count, which takes place from 10am Friday 3 May at Energise, will see local councillors, and parish councillors announced.
Final results are due around 6pm.
York is a three-way marginal, and was previously run by a Conservative-Lib Dem coalition.
It was also unusual in the high number of independents. By the end of the last council session there were nine.
And already the #DogsAtPollingStations is trending…
