UK voters start casting ballots in crucial general election

Millions of voters across the UK started casting their ballots to elect 650 Members of Parliament (MPs) to the House of Commons, the lower house of Parliament.

Each of the 650 constituencies will elect one MP through a first-past-the-post system, where the candidate with the most votes wins the seat. There are no runoffs, making Thursday the sole voting day.

Polling stations will open at 7 a.m. and close at 10 p.m. local time (0600GMT to 2100GMT).
