The Scottish people decide their future today in the historical Scottish referendum.
A whopping 97% of the electorate are registered to vote – some 4,200,000 people – and as many as 90% of the electorate are expected to vote, though it could of course be even more than that.
The result of the Scottish referendum is expected early morning on Friday (tomorrow), probably between 6:30am and 7:30am.
The polls close at 10pm tonight (Thursday).
There are more than 2,600 polling stations across Scotland, based in town halls, schools, sports centres and other community centres.
Almost 780,000 votes have been cast by postal vote.
Votes will be counted in Scotland’s 32 authority areas, then the total declared from Edinburgh.
