Teenagers will discover in a week which of them has become UK Youth Parliament members for Harrow.
Following the snowfall last week the counting of the 7,000 ballot papers - the largest turnout yet - was pushed back from February 2 to last Friday.
Candidates aged between 11 and 18 are competing for four posts, which include two Members of the Youth Parliament (MYPs) and two deputies.
The aspiring politicians were nominated for the posts by their peers before being whittled down to 14 students who released their manifestos with their vision for the future of the borough.
Schoolchildren have been voting since January 21 to have their say in the workings of the council.
The eventual MYPs will meet every two weeks with councillors and will also meet annually with other young people from across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland to have their say in decision making in the UK.
The winners will be announced on February 18.
