Follow the election night drama live here with the Star

THE Northern Star will provide rolling election coverage on Saturday night, focusing on results in regional areas.

Through the resources of the Star's parent company, APN News and Media, we will have reporters on the ground from northern NSW to North Queensland, all feeding through updates on what's happening in their local areas.

The APN Newsdesk team will also have reporters with Kevin Rudd, Tony Abbott and other key leaders to give you the latest developments as they unfold.

We will also have you plugged into the tweets of some of the best election watchers in the country so you won't miss a thing.

Locally, Northern Star reporter Alex Utting will be spending the evening with the main candidates in Page, and will be feeding back stories and links to the latest election results for each local seat so you can get results in real-time on your local website. MyDailyNews reporter Emma Gaillot will be providing live coverage of the Richmond electorate.

There will be a rolling APN election live chat, allowing regional voters to add their own comments and questions. You can register to be part of all the action.

The coverage will kick off from the close off poll at 6pm and continue into the night.
