No one calls an election at lunch time on polling day, but we have a quick report from the SDLP at one polling station in Carnmoney. They say they are not seeing the same number of faces as in previous years, something that might play well for David Ford. Registrations have certainly gone down, but that seems to have been fairly even distributed across the constituency. Too early to regard as significant. We’re getting reports from Lagan Valley of a respectable lunchtime turn out of 15%.
