The High Sheriff is the Returning Officer for any constituency wholly within the County. I decided to choose Guildford, as it is my own constituency. I arrived at the Spectrum Leisure Centre around 11.30 pm when the count was well under way . Sue Surgeon and her staff did a brilliant job and by 2.30 am we were ready to announce the result which had Anne Milton being returned as the MP. Great to see the democratic process in operation.
