The UK went to the polls on June 8 to decide whether Brexit supporter and current Prime Minster Theresa May stays, or the country goes to Labour under the leadership of Jeremy Corbyn.
The UK, which has over 46 million registered voters, opened its polling booths at 7am GMT. The booths shut at 10 pm.
Interestingly, the London terror attacks may have changed the equation a bit for May’s Conservatives, according to local media. This is the first major election since the European referendum and tensions were high with security beefed up following the attacks. The Telegraph says its poll tracker sees the Conservatives end with an average of 43 per cent against Labour’s 36.5 per cent.
Voters in all the 650 constituencies across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland are choosing their local members of parliament from the more than 3,300 candidates running throughout the UK.
Officially, 326 seats are needed for an overall majority in the House of Commons.
