News Online coverage
BBC News Online is poised to bring you the most comprehensive election results and news service available anywhere on the web.

Watch or listen to the results live on the internet - click here for details.

You'll be able to see the political story develop nationally, regionally and locally - in your own or any other constituency - as it happens.

Polling stations close at 2200 BST, on June 7, followed immediately by the release of the exit poll conducted by NOP for the BBC.

The first result, likely to be Sunderland South, is expected about 45 minutes later.

From then on, the pace increases through the early hours and we will bring you all 659 results as they are declared, as well as news and analysis.

All the results

You will be able to find your own constituency in a number of ways - by postcode, by name, by region or by which party won in 1997.

Political map
You will be able to see the candidates, victorious and defeated, the swings, and how the situation varies around the country.

There will also be a map which reflects the changing political landscape.

Key pages will carry a scoreboard summarising the UK-wide picture and those about Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland will carry a scoreboard for the relevant nation as well.

The Virtual Vote with its Swingometer will still be available for users who want to see for themselves what the projected figures might mean.

Election chat
For people elsewhere, there is an automatically-updating desktop scoreboard, which includes all the essential figures and information.

Those of you wanting to chat about the results will be able to do so with a range of guests brought in to discuss the election.

Desktop scorecard
The audio/video chat window will also allow participants to keep an eye on the BBC TV election programme and the scoreboard, so they will not miss a beat.

You will be able to make your opinions known in the Talking Point section.

The best audio/video coverage

News Online is offering its users a vast range of audio and video.

AudioVideo console
The unrivalled BBC One television programme, featuring the likes of David Dimbleby, Peter Snow and Jeremy Paxman, will be streamed live from 21:55 until 06:00 BST.

Alternatively, you could listen to the BBC Radio results programme, presented by James Naughtie, Jane Garvey and Mark Mardell.

There will also be audio coverage from no less than 15 BBC national and regional radio stations, for those who want a more local view of what is going on.

There will be a special declarations channel which will give you all the key declaration speeches from around the country - live and on demand.

There will be some 20,000 streams available for this material.

News Online's coverage will stretch into the next day, with the final counts expected from Northern Ireland some time during the evening of 8 June.

As soon as all the results are in, News Online's political team will continue analysing what it all means for the parties, the politicians and the nation.
