People in Scotland have voted for a historic decision: whether the country should stay in the UK or become an independent nation.
Voters had the choice between "yes" or "no" to the referendum question: "Should Scotland be an independent country?" There was no 'neutral' answer for people to opt for, if they chose to come for voting.
There was a historically high turnout of 85.64 percent with around 97 percent of Scots registered to vote.
Results have started trickling in with many of the areas to first decleare the decision narrowly leaning towards saying 'No'. 23 local election councils are submitting the results between 2am and 6am Friday morning. The final count, therefore, is expected to come after 6 am Friday local time.
