Jeremy Vine may be covering some election related topics *prior* to voting day - but on Polling Day itself all UK broadcasters hold off on election reporting and discussion - see this page for more information

Polling Day

In line with the political parties and other UK broadcasters, the BBC will not be reporting the election campaign or offering discussion about the campaign on any of its outlets while the polls are open.

The message boards will remain open on Polling Day, but users must refrain from discussing the election while the polls are open. Usual BBC House Rules will resume once the polls are closed.

Radio coverage in the run up to the election from the same source:-


BBC Radio 4's flagship current affairs programme Today will continue to scrutinise the parties in its usual style, with presenters John Humphrys, James Naughtie, Evan Davis, Sarah Montague and Justin Webb co-presenting from across the UK throughout the campaign. BBC's Washington correspondent Kevin Connolly joins the team as a roving reporter to provide insights into modern campaigning. Building on the success of its guest editors during Christmas, Today will hear from a range of voices offering a fresh perspective on politics.

Both BBC Radio 4's World At One and the World This Weekend strands will be extended to an hour. On PM, Eddie Mair will be in the chair, interviewing senior politicians, while Carolyn Quinn hits the road. Leaders' Election Call, chaired by Martha Kearney, will broadcast on BBC Radio 4 on six days during the campaign, giving listeners the opportunity to pose their queries to politicians.
On The World Tonight, presenters Robin Lustig and Ritula Shah will be doing special programmes from the North of England, Scotland and Wales, and the programme will be extended on the nights of the Prime Ministerial Debates.

On Radio 5 Live, Nicky Campbell plans to interview party leaders on 5 Live Breakfast, and the station will be covering the election extensively. Victoria Derbyshire will host four debates around the UK, allowing listeners to challenge politicians directly. After the election, her programme will issue every new MP with an MPs' guidebook written by listeners and laying out 15 things that every MP should abide by. There will also be a special Election Fighting Talk. The station's website will feature "the 5 Live election story" with audio highlights and unique journalism throughout the campaign.

Radio 1's Newsbeat has commissioned a national opinion poll of first-time voters, a crucial group in this closely fought election, and will be broadcasting the results early in the campaign. Presenter Tulip Mazumdar will also be hosting three specially extended live programmes, where a panel of first-time voters plans to interview the three main party leaders.

On Radio 2, Jeremy Vine's daily current affairs show will host a series of debates with ministers, their Conservative shadows and Liberal Democrat counterparts, and plans to interview the party leaders as well as leading politicians from the other parties.

The BBC Asian Network will publish the results of one of the biggest surveys of Asian voters ever undertaken in the UK in the lead-up to a General Election. Political reporter Adam Pasternicki will visit key Asian communities and candidates around the UK and there will also be a live Election Debate Special on Nihal's phone-in show, with prominent Asian politicians from the three main parties.
