Reports from social media, showing a promising turnout for the 2017 General Election with queues out the door. In particular it seems that young voters are turning out with many posting videos on their way to or from their polling stations.
It’s estimated than 500,000 more people are registered to vote in comparison with 2015.
We will update as the posts are coming in…

Wow. Just had to queue for 20 minutes at my polling station due to the queue of people who were specifically 18-24 years old

Massive queue of under 30s at my local polling station. Old woman turned to her friend and said, ‘this is what we feared.’ #GE2017

@jeremycorbyn Good luck in the election, Jeremy. Cast my vote and the queue was massive at Hove. Looks like a high turnout.

Loving all the photos of queues outside polling stations.
It hasn’t been like this in years.
Corbyn has been underestimated#VoteLabour

It’s tipping with rain in the West Country. People are queuing 15/20 deep & can’t wait to wash that ‘blue stuff’ out of their hair.#GE2017
