Hackney citizens were out in force this morning to cast their vote in the EU Referendum.
Polling stations are open until 10pm tonight for people to have their say on whether the UK should leave or remain part of the European Union.
Pictures have emerged on Twitter of snaking queues outside Hackney polling stations as residents hurried to vote before going to work.
A record 46.5 million UK citizens are registered to vote, with a string of opinion polls giving neither side a firm lead.
After the polls close, the count will start with the overall result expected to be announced tomorrow morning.
You do not need to take your polling card to the polling station or show any proof of ID.
You will need to tell polling staff your name and address.
They will then cross your name off their list and give you a ballot paper.
The elections watchdog plans to introduce the need for photographic ID in time for the 2019 local government and European parliament elections.
