Turnout and CON majority

The feeling on the floor at the Lewes count is it's going to be tight.
But the Tories feel a bit more optimistic than the Lib Dems.
The result is expected around 02:20 BST.

You might think Sussex is the Tories’ to lose. They currently hold all but two of the seats here.
Will confusion over the Tories’ adult social care plans cost them in elderly Eastbourne, a top Lib Dem target? And while they’re at it, might the Lib Dems take Lewes?
Meanwhile, Labour is hoping for an upset in Brighton Kemptown where government minister Simon Kirby is sitting on a small majority.
All three Brighton & Hove seats were visited by the Prime Minister early in the campaign.
The Tories are taking those threats seriously.
Don’t think they’re not on the offensive, though. Kristy Adams’ campaign has seen several government ministers descend on Hove.
A Tory landslide could cause an upset in Brighton Pavilion too. Though that’s much less likely.
It’d be a good night for Labour if they held on to Hove and took Kemptown.
If Crawley or Hastings turned from blue to red it would be something of a political earthquake.
Possible, but unlikely.

On Wednesday night, the Lib Dems announced they would not put up a candidate in Brighton Pavilion at June's General Election. The aim? To help Green MP Caroline Lucas keep her seat.
Many local Lib Dems were expecting the Greens to return the favour by standing aside in Lewes. So imagine their surprise when the Greens announced a Lewes candidate, Katie Hawks.
Lib Dem candidate Kelly-Marie Blundell says the news is "disappointing" - but let's be clear. The Greens haven't made a decision about whether Ms Hawks will appear on the ballot paper.
They say that Brighton Pavilion was a nice gesture, but if the Lib Dems really want a clear run at Lewes, they'll need to stand aside somewhere like the Isle of Wight, as well.
Standing aside isn't something political parties do lightly - and forming 'progressive alliances' could prove tricky if it isn't clear who's stepping aside in exchange for what.
