People are already casting their votes across Sussex after polling stations opened at 7am.

Today's General Election promises to be a momentous event both locally and nationally.

And The Argus will be keeping you right up to date with all the latest news as the drama unfolds.

Our website will be updated with a liveblog charting all the news from all the counts - starting from around midday.

You can join us to discuss how the election is going, tell us your stories from the day and give us your views on what the results mean.

Tomorrow will be producing an exclusive election special edition of The Argus in Brighton and Hove featuring results and reaction from counts across Sussex, including the city's three seats which have already attracted interest from the national's media.

We will follow this on Saturday with a full list of all the local results with more reaction and analysis, including a comment piece by Adam Trimingham.
