Nearly 4.3 million registered voters in Scotland are to decide Thursday on whether the country should stay in the UK or become an independent nation. Voters in the referendum are to answer "Yes" or "No" to the referendum question: "Should Scotland be an independent country?"
Polling agencies expect a very high turnout due to the record number of people registered to vote.
Eligible voters in the referendum include British, Irish, or EU citizens resident in Scotland and at least 16 years old.
The latest polls indicate that a No vote will prevail, the gap between the yes and no camps is just two percentage points, according to The Guardian.
If the referendum approves the creation of an independent state, Scotland, which has a population of 5.3 million, will move out of the European Union and NATO.
Earlier, Crimean authorities expressed their support to Scottish people ahead of the referendum.
"The people living in a particular place better understand the processes that are happening there and it is their right to take such a decision,”- Aksyonov said.
It should be noted, the referendum in Scotland is being held with the consent of the UK government so it will be internationally recognized.
