Low turnout expected in EU elections
However, with no local elections being held at the same time in this area, it is not expected that many residents will go and vote.
The UK Independence Party are expected to win votes from the traditional ‘big three’ political parties, but Labour, Conservative and Liberal Democrat activists are all still on the streets campaigning.
At one Sutton polling station, staff said that very few people had been in compared to when a general or council election is held.
Most of those who have voted were described as ‘over 40’, whilst postal votes seem to be more popular this time, with more votes cast this way than usual.
The polls are open until 10pm tonight.
