Returning Officer Tracey Logan welcomes guests to the count.

This will be completed on a ward by ward basis, and the result is being calculated using special scanners, which seem to be running smoothly.

The first ward, Tweeddale West, is expected to be announced soon.

The feel here is very different from general elections in that no-one can know how they did until the result is finally announced for each ward.
