I've talked about the turnout more than once today, but the word on the street is that Labour's GLA member, Janet Arnold (Hackney, Islington and Waltham Forest) may not be in a good position. Apparently the constituency has had turnout somewhere between 70% and 80% excluding postal votes in some wards!
That is a stupidly high turnout for what is, in effect, a local election in a safe Labour seat. I'm not saying that the vote that has turned out is not Labour votes, but there is a real buzz coming from Tories in the area and the candidate Alexander Ellis is feeling rather good right now based on the canvassing and knocking up operation.
I've also heard a tale from Greenwich and Lewisham that a presiding officer was concerned that they didn't actually have enough ballots to handle the queuing voters.
