General Election 2016: Live results
See the latest with our results tracker
This is Manx Radio's live blog for the 2016 House of Keys general election.
For the first time, two candidates will be returned from each of the Island's 12 new constituencies.
Sixty-three candidates are battling it out, and there has been a contest in every constituency (as in 2011).
Boundaries have been re-drawn since the last election to equalise the number of voters per constituency, and improve representation in the Keys. Previously, different-sized constituencies returned one, two or even three MHKs.
The winning candidates will appear in the table below as soon as results are declared - keep refreshing this page to see the latest.
You can also scroll down for additional updates, figures and analysis as the night unfolds.
Comprehensive results can be found on the Manx Radio Election 2016 site.
Manx Radio's live election programme starts at 18:00, hosted by James Davis, Beth Espey and Roger Watterson - featuring live declarations, studio discussion, expert analysis and comment from a panel of guests.
You can listen on AM and FM channels, online (through this link) or via our Manx Radio apps.
