Polling Day

Outside a primary school, being used as a polling station in East Belfast. Lots of primary schools were transformed into polling stations for the day - I'm sure the pupils and teachers were all delighted to get a day off.
Results of the Assembly election will start to come in around lunchtime tomorrow, although as the electoral procedure is complicated, with a lot of recounts, the full list of results probably won't be known until Saturday morning.

Is it only the schools used as polling stations that get the day off?

Here our elections are always on a Saturday, so no time off for the kids!

Hi Sally, yes, only the schools with polling shut - a lot of children were feeling very hard done by yesterday morning!
