Today is the BIG day for Scotland. They are voting on independence from the United Kingdom. I am excited for them! If I were Scottish I would be voting YES! I do think they would better govern themselves. All their wonderful natural resources and talent and ingenuity would make them a strong, rich nation. Why should England get all the rewards and make all the decisions about whats best for them?

You won’t see much being broadcast or written about today until the voting is over as this is their rule about that..
On polling day the BBC, in common with other broadcasters, will cease to report campaigns from 06.00 until the polls close. Coverage will be restricted to uncontroversial factual accounts, such as the appearance of politicians at polling stations or the weather. Subjects which have been at issue or part of the campaign, or other controversial matters relating to the election, must not receive coverage on polling day, to ensure that nothing in the BBC’s output can be construed as influencing the ballot while the polls are open.
