For the first time, voters going to the polls in England needed photo ID before casting their ballot papers.
Councils in the Black Country and Staffordshire, as well as Telford and Wrekin, are among the 230 local authorities holding elections this year, with around 8,000 seats up for grabs.
Dudley and Sandwell Councils verified and counted their papers overnight, with full results in by 4.20am and 2.35am respectively. Other councils will go through their ballot papers from Friday morning.
So far the losses inflicted on the Tories haven't been replicated in the Black Country, with Dudley and Sandwell Councils seeing little change in make up between the Conservatives and Labour.
Across the Black Country and Staffordshire, elections have been held at:
South Staffordshire - see full results
