Today, the British public are heading to polling stations to vote in a general election. It will be the country’s third in less than five years.
The main issue in this election is Britain’s exit from the European Union, or Brexit.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson called for the snap election on October 22 in the hopes of gaining more support for his plan to leave the EU.
He had wanted to rush the deal through as quickly as possible so that Brexit could take place on October 31. But while lawmakers approved the deal, they did not agree to it being implemented so soon.
Johnson is hoping for more votes in this election to strengthen his power in Parliament, so he can move forward with the deal.
It looked as if his tactic was working, as his Conservative party remained ahead of the main opposition, the Labour Party, in the polls throughout most of the election campaign. However, the gap has narrowed significantly in the last few days.
The Conservatives have tried to appeal to Pro-Leave voters, while Labour, led by Jeremy Corbyn, has tried to appeal to Pro-Remain voters.
If Johnson gets his majority, Britain could make its EU exit as early as December 31.
Meanwhile, Corbyn has promised that if he wins, he will try to negotiate a better Brexit deal, before holding a public vote on whether to accept that deal - or just stay in the EU after all.
If there is no clear majority ... things could get messy. The next few hours will reveal all.
