Did you have any trouble voting?

One of the news stories relating to election day was the claim that many people did not get to vote as the polling stations closed before they got their chance.

The Electoral Commission has now launched an investigation where members of the public can write in with their experiences.
The BBC website provides an introduction to what they regard as the root problems. It also contains a discussion forum where members of the public have put their comments This includes footage of queues shot from mobile phones.
The Channel 4 factblog considers claims that the problems were caused by high turnout and ultimately finds them to be a fiction.
Finally another interesting site to watch is the OSCE election observatiuon team who will be reporting on the consuct of the British elections.
