We expecting the North ward results first.
The floor is thick with possible future town councillors now, all awaiting the first announcement.
The counters are using the butterfly sheets system, where ballot papers are attached to larger sheets before being counted.
Yesterday's district council elections used the greenskirt sheets system, which involves marking by hand.
Mayor Martin Akehurst said: "This is a lot quicker than yesterday." He added: "I don't know about the town election, it's
difficult to call because there's so many people on the sheets.
"We know it's a good turnout because they were queuing at polling stations and the staff at the stations told
us the turnout was better than the last two or three elections."
The count is underway at the town hall, with dozens of volunteers sifting through the green ballot
The candidates have begun to gather in a corner of the room with the first announcement due at about 11am.
After two nights which saw the Conservative party take control of both the country and South Oxfordshire,
residents in Henley will now find out who is to represent them on the town council.
A total of 31 hopefuls will be at the town hall from 10am to find out if they have been elected at this morning's count,
and the Henley Standard is on hand with all the results, reaction and colour as it happens.
