Counting gets underway during Friday morning for most of the region's county councils after voting on Thursday.
The only count completed in this region is in Essex where the Conservatives retained an overall majority but saw their vote share slump to the lowest level since before 1973.
Most of the results are in from Hertfordshire with more Conservative losses but mainly going to Labour.
Counts start during Friday in Cambridgeshire, Norfolk, Northamptonshire and Suffolk.
Regardless of the result in Thursday's election, Northamptonshire will have fewer county councils because of boundary changes.
The Tories have been sent a warning in their traditional Essex heartland, losing nine county council seats to a bullish UKIP.
Suffolk County Council has been Conservative-controlled since 2005. On Thursday there were elections for 75 councillors.
