The SNP's Clare Haughey - a new face, who has won the Rutherglen constituency
BBC Scotland Westminster correspondent
The estimated times for the first declarations are:
Rutherglen - 1:30 but may change
East Kilbride 1:45
Clydesdale 2:00, but may change
Hamilton Larkhall & Stonehouse 2.00
Rutherglen was once a burgh - the oldest in Scotland - until local government reorganisation in 1975, and lies to the south east of Glasgow city centre. The name Rutherglen is said to come from Gaelic for "reddish glen" after the red clay found here.
At its northern border it blends into Glasgow's suburbs, though the town has always striven to maintain a distinct identity from Glasgow, which it predates by 500 years. The seat includes not only Rutherglen itself but also the town of Cambuslang, Burnside and the housing scheme at Fernhill, as well as Blantyre, all of which lie within the local government control of South Lanarkshire. Steel and pottery have been major industries in the past, but both have been in decline.
Janis Hughes won the seat for the Labour Party in the 1999 and 2003 elections. James Kelly then held the seat in 2007 and 2011.
