Counting is taking place this across Lancashire in this year's local elections.
Chorley was the only council in the county to declare overnight where Labour retained control.
Lancaster City Council and Preston City Council have been tweeting pictures as their counts get under way - results are expected later.
Lancashire councillors have agreed to raise council tax at the same time as approving £77m of service cuts.
The axe is set to fall on household waste recycling centres, welfare advice services, Special Educational Needs and disability services.
Conservative leader Geoff Driver said the savings will be implemented later this year, subject to consultation.
Labour opposition leader Azhar Ali said the budget will "sink communities" and "lead to the loss of lives".

The plan to build the Eden Project North in Morecambe has taken a step forward after Lancashire County Council agreed to pay £250,000 towards developing the proposal.
Cabinet members approved the funding request from education charity The Eden Project, which runs a venue of the same name in Cornwall.
Lancaster City Council has already decided to match the funding with Lancaster University and Lancashire Local Enterprise Partnership yet to reveal their own plans.
The Eden Project intends to match that combined £1m and work towards developing a business case.
The planned buildings would focus on water life, in a similar way to how the Cornish attraction specialises in rainforests.
