UK: Londoners hit polling stations for Brexit referendum

Reino Unido, London
23 junio 2016 a las 6:37 GMT +00:00 · Publicado

British voters began arriving at polling stations in London, Thursday morning, to cast their ballot in the 'Brexit' referendum, which will determine whether the UK stays part of the EU.

Voters were seen entering Hanover Primary School in Islington North, the district represented by leader of the Labour Party and 'remain' supporter, Jeremy Corbyn. Former London Mayor and Conservative MP Boris Johnson lives a short distance from the school and is expected to vote there later in the morning. Johnson is at the forefront of the 'leave' campaign and is tipped to become a candidate for Prime Minister if David Cameron resigns in the case of a Brexit.

There are 41,000 polling stations throughout the country which will be open between 07:00 BST and 22:00 BST.

An estimated 46 million people are entitled to take part in the vote - a record number for a UK poll. Results are expected to become clear between 03.00-04.00 BST, however, if the vote is close, it may take until 08.00 BST.

It is the third nationwide referendum to take place in UK history. The last referendum was over Britain's membership of the European Economic Community back in 1975. If a Brexit does go ahead, it will take a minimum two years for Britain to leave the EU, but could take longer, depending on negotiations.
