Today is polling day for those planning to vote in the local elections.
Politicians elected will have to face the difficult task of improving the small local areas they govern.
In light of this, we asked Leeds residents what changes they would like to see made to the area.
But are they confident changes like these will be made?
Citizens were also asked if they believe that the coming elections will change anything.
Polling stations are open, but eligible voters should check their polling card for voting locations.
These stations close at 10pm today. Results are expected to be announced tomorrow.
