Local Elections

Today is election day for 4360 council seats in England.

In Birmingham, the biggest metropolitan borough in the country, 41 seats are up for election, that's a third of the council.

At the last council election in Birmingham there were a large amount of vote fraud. An election judge said the evidence he heard would 'disgrace a banana republic.' Birmingham city council leader Mike Whitby has asked for police officers to be deployed in wards considered at greatest risk from fraud and intimidation.
