Kidsgrove By Election fever is well under way, with only a few hours to go until the polling stations close at 10PM.
It appears from speaking to Kidsgrove residents that all of the parties are taking this election seriously and are aware of the consequences this has on the makeup of Newcastle Borough Council. We have had reports from two residents of having a personal visit from Labour Candidate Terry Turner to ensure their vote, whereas others have reported being telephoned by the Conservative party.
This could be because all the parties will have seen the first ever Kidsgrove opinion poll which is going to predict this is going to be a close run election. A low turnout will make this even tighter, it the results from our poll are to be close to accurate and making allowances for general voting patterns.
The results will be announced of the Kidsgrove By Election tomorrow when they are counted at Newcastle Borough Council. Labour are expected to win this seat given the success that the party had last week in the elections in Kidsgrove and nationally.
