Polls open tomorrow as UK general election takes place


Polling day begins tomorrow as the leaders of the UKs three main political parties make a last ditch attempt for votes.

Tomorrow will see one of the most unpredictable elections in the UKs history take place, with polls suggesting no political party will win an overall majority, and placing Labour and the Conservatives neck and neck.

David Cameron of the Conservative Party, Ed Miliband of Labour and Nick Clegg of the Lib Dems have travelled across the county today in an attempt to drum up support for their parties. Cameron is visiting north west England, Scotland and the Midlands, Miliband is visiting tory held seats in the north and Clegg will be speaking to Lib Dem held seats in Scotland.

The Conservatives won 307 seats in the 2010 general election, and Labour under Gordon Brown won 258. The latest polls from the BBC put the Conservatives at 34% of the vote and Labour at 33%. The rise of fringe parties such as UKIP and the Green party has drained the support of the Conservatives, Labour and the Lib Dems, and may lead to another coalition government for the next five years, but between who is yet to be known.

The British newspapers have weighed in on the election, with the left wing Daily Mirror warning its readers that Cameron would axe nurses at two thirds of hospitals, while the Conservative-supporting Sun ran an unflattering picture of Miliband eating a bacon sandwich.

More than 45 million people in the UK will be eligible to vote tomorrow, with polls opening from 6AM to 10PM.
