USA Today has a great Q&A on everything you need to know about Scotland and what the vote means and might mean for Scotland and the United Kingdom.
“How concerned are leaders in the U.K. that Scotland will secede?”
“Leaders of the U.K.’s three main political parties have been campaigning at a furious pace in recent weeks to persuade Scots to vote “No.” Cameron of the Conservative Party, Liberal Democrat Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg and opposition Labor leader Ed Miliband have all been making speeches and attending rallies in Scotland. Cameron wrote in an opinion piece last week in the Daily Mail: “Let no one in Scotland be in any doubt: we desperately want you to stay; we do not want this family of nations to be ripped apart.””
* Polls open from 0700-2200 across Scotland on 18 September
* Voters will be asked: “Should Scotland be an independent country?”
* A total of 4,285,323 people are registered to vote
We will cover the results on here as they happen.
