Scots decide today whether to end 300 years of union with Great Britain and go it alone as they cast ballots in a historic referendum that is sure to have a lasting impact no matter which way it goes.
Public opinion polls in recent days have suggested that Scotland is very evenly split on the question and that the vote could be extremely close. The options are to vote “yes” or “no” to the question: “Should Scotland be an independent country?”
The results are expected on Friday.
