Voters are out and about casting ballots in the parliamentary election today in the United Kingdom. NPR’s Ari Shapiro has been speaking with voters in London, and tells Here & Now's Robin Young that there's a sense of relief that a complicated election season is coming to a close.
Shapiro also talks about how this election is very different from those in years past because this year, fringe parties have given the two major parties - the Labour party and the Tory party - a run for their money. The prediction is that the results will be a hung parliament. In other words, no party will secure a majority vote, and the process could drag on.
