Exit poll 2019: What is the forecast election result in my area?

The Conservatives are forecast to have a majority in Parliament, according to an exit poll published as voting in the 2019 general election ends.

The exit poll, carried out by Ipsos MORI for the BBC, ITV News and Sky News, suggests the Tories may win 368 seats and Labour 191.

The SNP is forecast to win 55 seats, the Liberal Democrats 13, Plaid Cymru three and the Green Party one. The Brexit Party is not forecast to win any seats,

What is the exit poll?

The exit poll is a way of forecasting what may happen in the general election, after voting ends but before the results are known.

Researchers at 144 polling stations across England, Scotland and Wales ask people to indicate which way they voted. Scotland has only 12 sampling points so the exit poll here is harder to forecast than in other parts of the country.

A team of academics led by Sir John Curtice, professor of politics at Strathclyde University, use this and other data to estimate the vote share per party in each constituency and then to forecast each party's likelihood of winning in any given seat.

All those individual probabilities are added together to arrive at the forecast seat totals for each party.

The model is updated throughout the night as results come in, so seat totals and individual constituencies are likely to change.

The constituency search and seat-by-seat list show exit poll forecasts for individual constituencies, apart from those in Northern Ireland.

If the chance of the forecast outcome in a seat is 95% or higher, it is shown as a "likely" outcome. If it is between 80% and 94%, it's a "possible" outcome.

Seats where the probability for any particular party winning is lower than 80% are shown as "too close to forecast".

The exit poll gives an indication of what may happen but, of course, the real result in each seat isn't known until the official declaration - at which point the information here will update when you refresh the page.
