The result will be known at about 10pm. We'll record the outcome then. My one source tells me she is likely to survive but the Association is divided.
10.05pm: Anne Main has survived the attempt to deselect her.
10.25pm: A very good inside source tells me that Mrs Main's victory was emphatic; 144 140 votes to 20. The Chairman and officers who instigated the deselection will now lose their posts. Local supporters of Main will be urging CCHQ to raise the threshold for triggering these kind of contests. They worry that the negative publicity surrounding the internal dissent has been a massive gift to the St Albans Liberal Democrats.
