The nine English regions and Wales announced their regional results overnight. Local results were also announced overnight in all Scottish council areas with the single exception of Na h-Eileanan Siar, which did not count their votes until the following morning due to local opposition to counting on the Sabbath. Thus the Scottish national declaration did not take place until around lunchtime on Monday 27 May.

Furthermore, due to the use of the single transferable vote (STV), it was expected that counting could take up to two days, but in the event it was completed on 27 May.
