But does this benefit NO or YES?
Less than three hours to go and all the indications that that the turnout is very large. At this stage there’s nothing to measure it against and it’s hard making a prediction on something which there’s an active betting market.
Quite who this benefits most is also hard to say. Whether it is YES getting out the first time voters or NO bringing in the “Shy Noes” or maybe it’s a large slab of both.
A independence referendum, as I’ve written about before, is a normal election in steroids and so this is proving to be.
High turnouts mean longer counts and there is no official exit poll. We might, however, get data on polling that has taken place during the day.
Thanks to Marf yet again for her drawing.
