To Be or Not to Be? Britain votes whether to stay or leave E.U.

Some polling stations are forced to close due to flooding

The British are choosing their future within or outside the European Union. On Thursday, the 23rd of June, numerous polls opened at 7 o'clock in the morning according to the local time. Those willing to come and express their will are set to answer one question: "Should the United Kingdom remain a member of the European Union?" The winner will be considered according to the absolute number of the votes got through the referendum with official results to be declared at Manchester Town Hall.

The local media report of high attendance despite heavy torrential rains. According to "The Guardian," weather conditions caused massive floods in London suburbs resulting in severe travel delays.

Apart from the United Kingdom citizens, the residents of the countries of British Commonwealth are also invited to participate in the referendum, that is Australia, Canada, India, Pakistan, Nigeria, and Gibraltar.

Socliogists say numerous polls do not show the real trend in voting, since different results verge close to the statistical uncertainty.
