Election competition results

Here are the winners - and correct answers - of our election competition Take 10.

During the election campaign, more than 40,000 of you played the competition Take 10, in which we asked you to use your skill and judgment to choose the answers to a range of questions, from the weather on polling day to the colour of tie the next prime minister would be wearing at their own seat declaration.

The correct answers were as follows:

1. Weather - Overcast;
2. Party leader voted first - Blair;
3. First seat to declare - Sunderland South;
4. First seat declaration time - 2246-2250;
5. Colour tie of next PM - solid red;
6. Party supported by Times newspaper - Labour;
7. Baby kissing - no;
8. Lowest votes - one (Cardiff North);
9. Monster Raving Loony - worse;
10. Turnout - 61%

Catherine and John Scriven

Amazingly no-one got 10 out of 10. But eight-year-old Catherine Scriven was the only person who got nine right, and thus wins a state-of-the-art digital radio, signed Andrew Marr cardboard cut-out, and a "Political Anorak" coat, donated by the Electoral Commission and signed by Peter Snow.

Her father John, a doctor from Skipton, North Yorkshire, says: "She said she wanted to enter, as she had never taken part in a competition before. To be honest, I'm a bit of a political anorak myself, so we worked out the answers between us. She's absolutely thrilled."

Runner-up was Steve Woodward of Gloucester, who wins a digital radio and a "Political Anorak" coat.

The bonus question was to estimate the exact number of votes which were cast (the calculation of which is one of the reasons it's taken a couple of weeks for this announcement to take place).

The winner - who got within five of the eventual total - was Steve Sugden of Leeds. He wins a digital radio.

So thanks to everyone who took part. You can check to see if you were in the top 500. You can also check the list in alphabetical order (by first name) by clicking the link below. Where more than one person got the same score, those who entered earlier are higher up the list.
