UK Voters are called to cast their ballots today for the third time in four years.
Polling stations will open across the UK at 7am this morning for what is said to be one of the most consequential elections in decades. A General Election that will define Britain’s future direction – and the fate of Brexit.
After five weeks of campaigning, the latest opinion polls in a divided UK suggest the race between rival parties has tightened significantly with Boris Johnson ended his campaign by promising to “deliver Brexit” by 31 January and Jeremy Corbyn pledge that Labour offers a “vote for hope”.
“Tactical voting” has been preached by many as Remainers hope to deny Boris Johnson a majority.
The polls which open shortly, at 7 am, will close at 10 pm with 46 million people in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland prepared to cast their votes in 40,000 polling stations
The exit poll is expected at 10pm and the first results will come in from 11pm.
