One of the most exciting parliamentary elections in the country's history is today.
About 50,000 polling stations opened in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
The British may vote in everything from containers to churches and pubs, and it is expected that around 30 million of the country's 50 million eligible voters will show up.
Recent polls before the election shows virtually no difference between the two major parties, the Conservatives and Labour, and none of them is expected to win a majority in Parliament.
- I have no idea who is going to be prime minister in about a month, admits head of the poll institute You Gov, Peter Kellner.
You Gov's latest poll shows that Prime Minister David Cameron's party the Conservatives will end up with 284 representatives in the House of Commons, while Ed Miliband's Labour is predicted to win 263.
Both parties are thus far from the 326 representatives needed to secure a majority, and the winner must therefore find a coalition partner.
The Scottish independence party SNP is likely to get 48 reps, while the Liberal Democrats according to You Gov seem to get 31.
Nigel Farage's immigration and EU-skeptical party UKIP looks to win only 2 seats.
