Follow the UK Election online as it happens

Today is polling day, stay constantly updated until the results by following the election online.

We already mention the fact that this election is UK’s first ‘social media election’. But today some other features have been added. You can tell your friends you’ve voted by pushing the ‘ I voted’ button on Facebook. A counter is also there to track how many users have voted. The Guardian is using a Twitter mashup to plot votes on a map. People when they voted just have to tweet about it the #UKvote hashtag.
When the voting’s over, you’ll have to find out who won, right? Well you could go on ExitPol.ly to see what the crowdsourced results say or you can see a broader view of the BBC’s election coverage here.
You can also get the results with ‘The Election 2010′ iPhone app that will give you live election results as they come in through the night.
