In UK, millions of people will be casting their vote in the general elections today. Polls open at 07:00 BST local time at more than 40,000 polling stations across the country.

A total of 650 Westminster MPs will be elected, with about 46.9 million people registered to vote. A handful of seats are expected to be declared by midnight, with the final results expected tomorrow afternoon.

To form a majority in the House of Commons, one party must win 326 seats. A number of UK pollsters consider that the Conservative Party would finish first in the race. A latest poll put her party on 46 percent and Labour Party on 34.

Addressing a campaign rally in Norwich, eastern England yesterday, Prime Minister Theresa May said, only she can deliver a good Brexit deal.

Prime Minister, Theresa May unexpectedly called the snap vote seven weeks ago, seeking to increase her working parliamentary majority of 17 seats ahead of the start of negotiations on leaving the European Union.
