Polling stations opened at 7am and will close at 10pm, with voters in Moray selecting MPs in two new constituencies.

These are Moray West, Nairn and Strathspey (which includes Elgin, Forres, Lossiemouth and Aberlour) and Aberdeenshire North and Moray East (Fochabers, Keith, Buckie).

Once polls close, ballots for Moray West, Nairn and Strathspey will be taken to Elgin Town Hall to be counted. A result is expected to be announced at around 4am.

Ballots for Aberdeenshire North and Moray East will be taken to Aberdeen’s P+J Live, where a result is expected at the slightly later time of 4.45am.

Votes for Gordon and Buchan constituency, which includes Huntly, and both Aberdeen North and Aberdeen South will also be tallied and announced at the P+J Live.

The Northern Scot will have teams working through the night in Elgin and Aberdeen to keep readers up-to-date with both counts.
