The polls have opened in the Point FM area for the Welsh Assembly and Police & Crime Commissioner elections.
Across the North Wales Coast, voters will be electing two AMs to serve the two constituencies of the Vale of Clwyd and Clwyd West. Four regional AMs will also be elected to serve the North as a whole.
In the constituencies, there are five party candidates in the Vale of Clwyd, where 38 polling stations are open, mostly in the key centres of Rhyl, Prestatyn, St Asaph and Denbigh.
Six party candidates are fighting for the Clwyd West seat, which covers such areas as Towyn, Kinmel Bay, Abergele and Llanddulas – a total of 62 polling stations are open. There are also 58 prospective regional AMs standing in the North.
Voting for the Welsh Assembly seats closes at 10pm with counting due to take place overnight.
In the other key election, voters will decide who will take up the role of the North Wales Police and Crime Commissioner. There are five candidates in the running, but unlike the Assembly elections, the result won’t be known until Sunday.
